Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board announces its Top Ontario Scholars for 2021-22
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s (DPCDSB) top Ontario Scholar for the 2021-22 school year is Darius Rudaitis from St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga. Darius scored a perfect average of 100%. He is set to attend the University of Waterloo in the fall, where he has enrolled in the Computer Engineering program.
DPCDSB’s top Ontario Scholar from a Brampton school is James Kania from Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School, who graduated with an average of 99.67%. James has enrolled in the Life Sciences program at the University of Toronto.
Cassidy Stevens from Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School is the top Ontario Scholar in the Bolton/Caledon/Orangeville area with a 97.33% average. Cassidy will be studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of Waterloo.
“Congratulations to Darius, James and Cassidy for their remarkable achievements despite a very challenging and unusual couple of school years,” 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, 4,549 DPCDSB graduates earned this distinction.
“This year, we recognize our 7,301 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.”
