The mission of Saint Columbkille Partnership School has driven its dedicated faculty and staff to build a sustainable educational model that serves the families of Allston-Brighton and surrounding communities. A main ingredient in our success is derived from the partnership with Boston College. Our teachers and administrators are credentialed with graduate degrees fully funded by Boston College. Guided by the expertise offered by the Lynch School of Education, we have become a school that utilizes the newest and best practices in education while teaching prospective teachers and future Catholic school administrators.

Our curriculum is research-based and data-driven. We have found that educational excellence is achieved by delivering a rigorous curriculum, backed by a trusted support system. As such, Saint Columbkille Partnership School is part of the renowned Catholic Schools Connects optimized student support system. Each student is given the tailored set of intervention, prevention, and enrichment services he or she needs to thrive.

To be true to our mission to develop the “whole child”, a capital campaign to fund the renovation of newly acquired space was completed. In the summer of 2014, the school added two science centers, a media/library center, art and music rooms, a learning center, seven additional classrooms, and much needed office space. The cafeteria was expanded and remodeled to meet the needs of the ever-growing school population. Last year we completed a one million dollar improvement project that includes a practice field and a mixed-use recreation area, an area for basketball and play. Inclusive in this project is a student drop-off area along with walkways, curbing and landscaping that include bushes, trees benches, and fencing.

Planning is underway to renovate our gymnasium that will enable us to expand our athletic offerings.
