This is my first go around using a legitimate engine to try creating games (My only prior knowledge in game creation is with Scratch). I would like to find out where a good tutorial or fully fledged class is so I can learn in depth how to use Godot and make my ideas a reality. Thank you so for taking the time to read and answer!

The official documentation has a "getting started" section:
http://docs.godotengine.org/en/2.1/learning/step_by_step/index.html

There are several of us making tutorials, here are some you can take a look at:

Godot 101 - text/video (by me): http://kidscancode.org/blog/2017/02/godot_101_01/
GDquest - lots of video tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxboW7x0jZqFdvMdCFKTMsQ
Flappy Bird tutorial- video: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLv3l-oZCXaql20IlPe7gfBEzomnPSLekY
Ivan Skodje - assorted Godot topics: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBHuFCVtZ9vVPkL2VxVHU8A

Also, highly recommended to join the Discord server - https://discord.gg/zH7NUgz
Lots of helpful people hang out there and are happy to answer questions.

EDIT: If you're totally new to programming entirely, your best bet is to start by learning to code before you dive into a modern game engine. Python is your best bet - it's relatively easy to learn, and GDScript is very similar so your transition will be smooth. There are a lot of great free Python courses out there (avoid Codecademy, in my opinion it is lacking):

Learn Python - https://www.learnpython.org/
Think Like a Computer Scientist (online book) - http://openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english3e/
