St Mirinís Academy was a R.C. Senior Secondary School for boys founded in 1922 at East Buchanan Street next to St Mirinís Church. In 1933 the school relocated to new buildings in Renfrew Road. St Mirinís Academy ceased to exist in 1976 when it amalgamated with St Margaretís Senior Secondary (a girlsí school) to become St Mirinís and St Margaretís High School. This was when they moved to the school building which had been built for the John Neilson Institution, at Ferguslie.
Their next move was during 2002, to the newly-built School, named St Andrewís Academy, Ben Nevis Road, Paisley.
