Freshmen Orientation

Friday, August 18th, will be Freshmen Orientation for Galileo’s class of 2021 (the class that will graduate on Galileo Academy’s 100th anniversary).

Orientation will begin in the Galileo Auditorium at 8:30 am. Freshmen and their parents can see video of last year’s fun student activities, and meet Galileo’s leadership team. Then incoming students will get tours of the Galileo building, and information about different services offered by the school.

Then students should prepare for the start of the school year the following Monday morning, August 21st.

Senior Portraits & School Photos

Seniors should have received a letter in the summer with a scheduled appointment. If you did not get this letter, or if you need to switch your appointment, see the photographer’s staff after school Monday in the Auditorium. You want to look good in the Yearbook!

School Photos for all other students will be taken on Wednesday and Thursday, August 30th & 31st. You will be taken for photos during your P.E. class, U.S. or 10th and 11th grade Social Studies classes.
