Saint Columbkille Partnership School is a pre-K through eighth grade Catholic School located in the Allston-Brighton neighborhood of Boston. The school is associated with Boston College and offers a rigorous curriculum rooted in the Catholic faith.

Founded in 1901 the school employs Jesuit pedagogy with the goal to develop the whole child intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically.  An important element of the school is its partnership with Boston College. Guided by the expertise offered by the Lynch School of Education at Boston College, the school teaches prospective teachers and future Catholic school administrators preparing for a master's degree.

The school’s curriculum is research-based and data-driven. The school believes that educational excellence is achieved by delivering a rigorous curriculum, backed by a trusted support system. This is greatly facilitated by the school’s association with the renowned “Catholic Schools Connects” student support system. Each student receives a personalized set of intervention, prevention and enrichment services.

The mission of the school is to provide an environment where students will:

  • Learn the key teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church and understand how the Gospel values guide a life of faith, justice, and service to others – especially the less fortunate

  • Acquire in-depth knowledge of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts

  • Experience a learning environment that emphasizes inquiry, independence, and self-discovery

  • Develop an understanding of and respect for others, especially for classmates and peers whose background and perspectives are different from their own

  • Live a lifestyle that emphasizes the importance of physical activity, wellness, and healthy development

The school’s early childhood program is research-based and will introduce children to the world of learning that is critical for later academic and social success.  Aligned with the mission of the school, the program uses age-appropriate curriculum and manipulatives to engage young children in learning and play .
The school’s elementary program educates children in grades one through grade five. Under the watchful eye of highly professional teachers, children are navigating through these years as they begin to develop their character and social self.

The Loyola Academy, which is part of the school, offers children of grades 6-8 a rigorous curriculum together with healthy development in an environment of Catholic faith. Developmental plans are personalized and appropriate services and enrichment opportunities are identified for each student.  Extracurricular activities are provided with sports, art, music and other activities.
