Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board announces its Top Ontario Scholars for 2022-23
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s (DPCDSB) top Ontario Scholar for the 2022-23 school year is Rahul Narula from St. Francis Xavier Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga. Rahul scored a perfect average of 100%. He is set to attend the University of Toronto in the fall, where he has enrolled in the Computer Engineering program.
DPCDSB’s top Ontario Scholar from a Brampton school is Christopher Diab from Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School, who graduated with an average of 99.17%. Christopher has enrolled in the Computer Engineering program at the University of Toronto.
Marco Lo Dico from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School is the top Ontario Scholar in the Bolton/Caledon/Orangeville area with a 99.16% average. Marco will be studying Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
“Congratulations to Rahul, Christopher and Marco for their remarkable achievements,” said Marianne Mazzorato, Director of Education. “It takes tremendous dedication, focus and commitment on the part of these students to achieve this level of academic success. It is also a reflection of the support and guidance provided to them through their educators, parents and guardians who inspired and encouraged them to prepare for post-secondary career pathways.”
To be an Ontario Scholar, students must achieve an average of 80% or higher on their top six Grade 12 courses. This year, 3,867 DPCDSB graduates earned this distinction.
“This year, we recognize our 7,090 DPCDSB graduates who have fulfilled the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations and are ready to take on a new journey outside the familiar walls of their schools,” added Marianne Mazzorato. “We are extremely proud of each and every one of them and wish them success and God’s richest blessing as they move on to the next chapter in their lives.”A complete list of 2022-23 DPCDSB Top Ontario Scholars.
