Tutors for All: Codman Academy partners with Tutors for All to offer all 9th and 10th grade students 3 hours of weekly individualized tutoring instruction in math and literacy in the school's Saturday Program. Tutors for All bridges the achievement gap one student at a time. Through the creation of partnerships between colleges, public schools, and community agencies, it offers undeserved students the systematic one-on-one instruction they need in order to thrive.
Massachusetts Commonwealth Corps: Codman Academy partners with the Massachusetts Commonwealth Corps to provide additional services for our students, including tutors through the Tutors for All program. The mission of the Commonwealth Corps is to engage Massachusetts residents of all ages and backgrounds in direct service to rebuild communities and address unmet community needs.
LEAP School: Over the past ten years, Codman Academy has sent several student and staff delegations to the LEAP Science and Math School, our partner school located in Cape Town, South Africa, for service learning expeditions. In 2009, Codman hosted a delegation of student and staff from the LEAP School; our South African guests delivered a presentation to the entire school at Community Circle. The LEAP program, which was established in 2004 to address the inequities in South Africa's education system, consists of teacher training programs, a community outreach center, and three schools serving Langa, Gugulethu (Cape Town), and Alexandra (Johannesburg).
Epiphany School: Epiphany is an independent, tuition-free, middle school for children of low-income families from Boston neighborhoods. Located within blocks of Codman Academy, we utilize their gym and work closely to support their alumni who attend Codman.
Tufts University: Developing the next generation of urban teachers is a shared mission between Codman and the Urban Teacher Training Collaborative (UTTC) program at Tufts University. The UTTC is a graduate level program for Master of Arts in Teaching candidates. It uses an innovative model for teacher training similar to the "residency" model used to train medical professionals. Instead of completing a typical ten-week school internship after a semester of university courses, UTTC student teachers—referred to as interns—work at their assigned schools for a full year, under the guidance of mentor teachers and university professors, starting on the first day of school and ending in May.
Courageous Sailing: Codman students have the opportunity to learn to sail through Courageous Sailing.
Ropes and Gray: Ropes and Gray serves as Codman Academy Foundation's pro bono legal counsel.
