The number of students graduating from catholic high schools hit an all-time high in 2018, according to data released by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

In 2018, a total of 90.5% of students graduated from high school within five years, up from 89.1% last year. In addition, 86.6% managed to complete their diploma within four years, up from 83.5% last year.

Provincially, 87.1% of all students graduated within five years, up from 86.3% last year, while 81.2% graduated within four years, up from 79.8% last year.

“We’ve never exceeded that 90% threshold, so we’re delighted to see these numbers,” said Emelda Byrne, Executive Superintendent of Education. “Graduating from high school is a major determinant of future success, so we’re very pleased that more of our students are meeting expectations. We work very hard with our students to make sure they are accumulating their credits, and ensuring they are following the academic pathways that are most suited to their interests and ambitions.”
