The Lynch School partners with a range of urban and suburban public, private, parochial, and charter schools in Greater Boston—empowering students to apply their skills in dynamic classroom settings. In the process, they gain teaching experience and learn how to thrive in an increasingly diverse education environment.
Student teaching opportunities include:
Boston College supports these partnerships through competitive national grants, including recent awards from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the National Science Foundation and through Title III funding from the U.S. Department of Education.
Graduate students complete one pre-practicum experience. Although only one school day per week for 10 weeks is required, we recommend graduate students spend two school days per week on-site during their pre-practicum.
The Lynch School requires graduate students to complete one 14-week, full practicum experience, conducted under the joint supervision of the Program Supervisor and the Supervising Practitioner.
