Gallagher attended Chaminade College Preparatory School, located in the San Fernando Valley region of California US, from where he matriculated in 2003. He graduated from the University of Southern California, School of Cinema-Television (CNTV) in 2007.

He took a break from filming the series in the eighth season so he could attend college, but returned as a smaller part in the show for its ninth and tenth seasons.
