A Short History
Of St. Patrick Academy Clement Town
St.Patrick’s Academy, Clement Town, the next door sister concern of St.Joseph’s Academy, Dehradun is one of the latest additions of Patrician educational endeavours in India. The idea of having another educational concern in or around Dehradun in the same tenor of St.Joseph’s Academy and St.George’s College was dreamt about by the Brothers a long time ago. However, it could not materialize owing to various reasons. In 2011, the community at St.Joseph’s Academy once again revived the dream and the Patrician Brothers earnestly set about to realize it. After obtaining necessary consensus from the Indian Province’s administrative team,the community began the ground work on a very positive note.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.Much of the credit goes to Bro.A.J.George and Bro.Sebastian for their earnest effort in bringing about this dream into a reality.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.
ST. Patrick’s Academy is yet another venture of the Patrician Brothers who have been involved with education for over 125 years around the world.
