Brief History of Sherubtse College

The task force led by the former Min­ister of Foreign Affairs, Lyonpo Dawa Tshering, the late Rev. Father William Mackey, and Lopon Kharpo set out to find a suitable site for a school to live up to this vision. They chose Kanglung and in 1968 a new public school was inaugurated by His Majesty the Third King himself, and named Sherubtse, meaning ‘peak of learning’. Eight years later in 1976, Sherubtse Public School became a junior college with pre-uni­versity courses in Science. In 1978, Arts and Commerce courses were added. In July 1983, Sherubtse Junior College became a fully- fledged degree college affiliated to Delhi University.
