A lab school experience like no other in Boston

Welcome to the only lab school in Boston offering a pre-K through Grade 8 Catholic education supporting cutting-edge approaches to teaching and learning in the humanities, the arts, and the sciences against the backdrop of the Catholic intellectual tradition. As the laboratory school of Boston College’s Lynch School of Education and Human Development, we employ best practices in education and strive to develop the whole child - intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically - in order to prepare graduates to live lives of faith, service, and leadership.

We are excited to share our community with you and support you through the admission process. 
The first step is to complete an inquiry form and schedule one of the visit opportunities outlined below. To learn more about the starting age requirements for young learners, please visit our Early Childhood page.

Visit Opportunities
We are excited to host a variety of in-person and virtual open house events, and school tours to fit your schedule and needs. Each will offer a brief presentation, with an opportunity to meet our admissions team and learn more about our pre-K to Grade 8 programs. Please complete our inquiry form and we will contact you to schedule a tour.

Children who are 2 years and 9 months (2.9) by September 1 and are accepted to Saint Columbkille Partnership School will begin school on the first day of the 2 years and 9 months’ school year.

Students who turn 3 years old by March 1st, which means they turn 2.9 by December 1st, may also enroll but they cannot attend Saint Columbkille Partnership School until they turn 2 years 9 months. For example, a child who turns 2 years 9 months on October 15 can start school on or after October 15. 

There are two options for enrolling a child who is not 2 years 9 months by September 1, but will turn 2 years 9 months by December 1: guarantee a spot for your child or wait to enroll in hopes that a spot is available when the child turns 2 years 9 months.

  • Guarantee your child a spot in the 2.9 class by applying and enrolling in the admissions cycle. In this case, tuition payments begin July 1 and are not prorated. The child will begin school on or after the day the child turns 2 years 9 months. In the above example, the child would start school on October 15 and monthly tuition payments would begin on July 1.
  • Wait to enroll once the child turns 2 years 9 months. In this case, if a spot is available, the child will start on or after the day they turn 2 years 9 months. Tuition will begin the first day of the month that the student starts. In the above example, the student would start school on October 15 and begin monthly tuition payments on October 1. 

Students who turn 3 after March 1st must wait until the next school year to enroll in K0.
