Dr. I. D. Rastogi Academy was established keeping in mind the growing preference of parents to explore other boards of education beyond the state board. The society members decided to establish an ICSE Board school and to distinguish the ICSE board school from state board school, the new entity was proposed to be given a unique identity and in honour of our /founding manager was decided to be branded as Dr. I. D. Rastogi Academy. The new school under the aegis of Town Hall Educational Society commenced operation from Sahara Estate, Jankipuram campus from the academic year 2004-05 and the school was granted provisional affiliation in 2011 and the same was subsequently upgraded to permanent affiliation by the council on 20th January, 2016.
The Dr. I.D. Rastogi Academy is affiliated to the Delhi-based Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) which offers the ICSE (class 10) and ISC (class 12) qualifications for Science, Commerce and Humanities streams. In addition to ICSE board of education, the school has become an academic centre affiliated to National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS).
