Drake's Diploma: Performer Graduates From High School

Congratulations, Drizzy! The 25-year-old performer has graduated from high school.

Drake, born Aubrey Drake Graham, tweeted Wednesday night, "97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!"

Just a few minutes later he followed up with, "Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND"

Drake famously played a high school student, Jimmy Brooks in the Canadian series "Degrassi: The Next Generation." He started playing Jimmy at the age of 15 so juggling an acting career with a high school education made getting a degree on time a struggle.

During the time that he has been working towards his degree, Drake has been busy. He was nominated for nine Grammy Awards and nine Billboard Music Awards, won three BET awards, and was named the Man of the Year in 2010 by "GQ." His 2011 album, "Take Care," went platinum, debuting at number one and selling 631,000 copies in its first week.
