A student from St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga scored a perfect average of 100 per cent across all of his classes this year.

With his scores, Darius Rudaitis topped all other students in the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board with his academic achievements during the 2021-22 school year.

“Congratulations to Darius (for his) 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.”

Rudaitis is set to attend the University of Waterloo in the fall, where he has enrolled in the Computer Engineering program.

The board’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%. Kania 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. Stevens will be studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of Waterloo.

This year 4,549 Catholic board students were Ontario Scholars meaning they achieved an average of 80 per cent or higher on their top six Grade 12 courses. In total, 7,301 students graduated from the system this school year.

While Rudaitis had the top marks, several others were not too far behind. For a further list of those with top marks visit DPCDSB’s 2021-22 Top Ontario Scholars.
