Detailed Information

A partnership was formed in 2006 among the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, Saint Columbkille Parish, and Boston College to combine resources in educational leadership, academic practice, student development and religious formation. The Saint Columbkille Partnership School is a PreK through grade 8 Roman Catholic School in Boston. Employing Jesuit pedagogy, the school prepares children to live lives of faith, service and leadership.

The Preschool Program is a well-developed, research-based program that introduces children aged 3 through kindergarten to learning skills critical for later academic and social success. Children engage in purposeful play and academic instruction. With guidance from teachers, students develop a natural curiosity and love of learning.


The school is committed to the education of children of all backgrounds in an environment that cultivates respect, mutuality and care. Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, Saint Columbkille searches for the truth with joy, practices the good with conviction, and contemplates the beautiful while preparing students for lives of faith, service and leadership.


Children in the preschool academic program explore literacy, mathematics, science, religion, Spanish, art, music, and physical education.

Teachers and Staff

Teachers hold degrees in early childhood education and receive support from classroom aides, as well as other adults. This helps the school provide small group instruction to meet the needs of each child.

Schedule and Extended Hours

Early morning drop off at 7:00am and extended afternoon hours until 5:30pm are available for an additional fee.

Throughout the school year and during vacation weeks, a comprehensive, coordinated after-school program is offered. Students will engage in academic and enrichment programs. There are also two summer options, including art and STEM programs that include field trips and use of Boston College amenities.
