Welcome from the Head of School

Perhaps the most important decision parents will make is that of choosing a school for their child. After all, our children are our treasures and the hope of the future.

Saint Columbkille Partnership School has a long history of educating elementary aged children to become their best selves in a safe, caring, learning environment. We are a Catholic school with a rich tradition of forming the whole child; mind, body, and spirit. Our students are taught the values of self-discipline, hard work and sacrifice. Our ethnically and geographically diverse student body broadens the student experience and prepares students for the multi-cultural world they will enter.

Our partnership with Boston College has enabled us to advance a rich Inquiry-based curriculum, enhance the professional development of our faculty and, revitalize our physical plant. We are a national model for Catholic early childhood, elementary, and middle school education, fusing rich tradition with innovation. Our partnership with Saint Columbkille Parish allows us to ground our learning in faith.

Our teachers are committed to their work and view their teaching as a vocation. They care deeply for their students. The overwhelming majority of our teachers have attained a Masters degree and continue to study at Boston College.

We view our parents as full partners in the educational process and encourage active participation. Parents work hard to support their children and our teachers. It is this relationship that ensures a family friendly atmosphere that is a hallmark of our school. At Saint Columbkille Partnership School children are known, loved and challenged!

I encourage you to visit our learning community. We are proud of our students, parents and faculty and welcome the opportunity to share our story with you.
