St. Patrick’s Academy, Clement Town, Dehradun is one of the latest additions of Patrician Educational endeavours in India; its the next door sister concern of St. Joseph's Academy, Dehradun and St. George's College. On 18th of July, 2012 the foundation stone was blessed and laid by Rev. Fr. Anthony Dass and Rev. Bro. Bosco, the Indian Province Leader of Patrician Brothers respectively. As we Brothers commemorate the 200th death anniversary of our beloved Founder Bishop Daniel Delany, it would be a fitting tribute to him, who dared to dream big. It is our hope and dream, that through the guidance and protection of St. Patrick the patron of the school and our founder, St. Patrick's Academy will be a place where the children of, in and around Clement Town will recognize, realize and achieve their fullest potential and contribute positively to the society at large. May they all be guided to seek the truth as stated by the motto of our school 'QuerereVerum'. The school opened its gates for the children in the year 2014. Within a short span of time St. Patrick’s Academy has made its mark among the best schools of the town.
