TCDSB Top Scholars 2018-2019

Top Scholars Spotlight.jpg

Toronto Catholic District School Board’s top scholars for the 2018-19 academic year have earned coveted grades in a variety of subject areas. Their secrets to success? Some say hard work, organization, determination and discipline, while others say it was their thirst for knowledge.
These top students far exceeded provincial education standards. Core learning in the areas of science, mathematics, technology and the arts built a foundation of skills for their postsecondary studies where they will prepare for success in their future careers in law, medicine and engineering.
Outside the classroom, these talented individuals used their voice and influence to positively change their school environments and become more actively involved in their communities.
Congratulations to our Top Scholars, their parents and school communities:
