Saint Columbkille School was founded in 1901 by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston.
In spring 2006, an historic Catholic school partnership established a new governance model for Saint Columbkille Partnership School – the first of its kind for Catholic education in the United States.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, Saint Columbkille Parish, and Boston College have combined their resources in educational leadership, academic practice and research, student development, and religious formation to create a flagship Catholic school in Boston and a new national model of excellence in Catholic elementary education.
