Emmanuel's partnership with Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) Mission Grammar School is a true collaboration that brings urban youth to campus and offers our education majors robust, practical experience.

Founded in 1889 under the direction of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Mission Grammar is a college-preparatory Catholic school located in the Roxbury Crossing section of Boston and serving scholars from infancy through grade six.

Emmanuel and Mission Grammar have enjoyed a vibrant partnership over the decades. Many of Mission Grammar’s administration and faculty are graduates of Emmanuel College, including President Aliece M. Dutson ’05. Emmanuel’s Education Department regularly places students in pre-practicum, practicum, and internship roles at Mission Grammar, and Emmanuel students dedicate their time to Mission Grammar through various service initiatives. Mission Grammar scholars, in turn, visit the Emmanuel campus regularly for educational, spiritual, and recreational opportunities.
