A child actor on popular Canadian teen series Degrassi: The Next Generation from the age of 15 to 22, Drake never finished high school. But now that he’s on a break from recording albums and touring, the Toronto native has decided to finish what he started.“I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school,” he said in a recent interview with Now Toronto. “That’s my main focus after OVO Fest. I only have one credit left, and I’m really excited about that.”
Drake isn’t the only Canadian breakout star to go after his high school degree this year. In July, Justin Bieber graduated from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, Ontario, after taking courses electronically.
