• WELCOME TO GALILEO’S GATE PROGRAM

  • PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Galileo offers its gifted and talented students challenging, rigorous educational opportunities in a variety of scientific and technological areas as well as in the general education classes. GATE students will join a cluster of students and faculty that will provide support, continuity and guidance throughout their four years in a school that promotes both academic challenge and scholastic achievement. In the 9th and 10th grades, students will receive a firm foundation in academic subjects. And starting in the 10th grade, students have the options to choose a CAREER PATH that will serve to focus their choices of course work on a specific area of interest or the option to expand on their rigorous coursework in the Honors and AP course offerings.
