Galileo School for Gifted Learning is a federally recognized  501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  There are no shareholders or stockholders.  Our Board members are volunteers. As a charter school, we only receive 60% of the revenue of traditional public schools.  100% of revenue is reinvested in technology, services, or programs for the children at Galileo School.


As Galileo's fifth school year comes to a sweet end, we are excited to host our first summer camp season. Dragons can beat the heat with a wide array of enriching themes. Sign up for the coolest summer camp around before our introductory prices take a vacation after May 15th. Use this link to secure your spots for each of the seven weeks:
