The Government of Ontario recently released the 2018 student graduation figures for the province’s Catholic and public school boards. The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon takes great pride in the fact that 93% of its students complete the requirements for their high school diploma in less than five years, with 91.3% receiving their diploma in four years. The CSCNO students’ graduation rate is among the best among all school boards in Ontario and is the highest among all school boards operating in the districts of Sudbury, Manitoulin and Algoma.
