Urban Catholic Teacher Corps (UCTC)

Saint Columbkille Partnership School is proud to partner with the Urban Catholic Teacher Corps (UCTC), a two-year urban teaching practicum as part of Boston College’s Lynch School of Education and Human Development. Founded in 1997, the program actively engages in the ministry of teaching in the schools of the Archdiocese of Boston.

While completing a master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction at BC, UCTC members commit to a two-year teaching practicum in Boston’s Catholic schools serving urban students. This rigorous teacher preparation program provides teaching support, intentional community living, and individual faith formation opportunities. Learn more about the program here.

“The heart of UCTC has always been, and will always be, the love and sharing of gifts and self between the people that make up our community. This includes those cohort members, alumni, friends, founders, donors, principals, staff, mentors, and students who have been, and will continue to be engaged with UCTC. Each member of this community makes up a special and important part in defining who we are and will become. The relationships cultivated between us as individuals and as a community are some of the greatest strengths of UCTC.”
