Graduation Ceremony 2023-2024

May 15, 2024

What a year! On May 15, 2024, Uchenna Academy hosted a memorable high school graduation ceremony, marking the end of an incredible journey for 14 graduates. Three of the students graduated  from grade 8 and eleven students graduated from grade 12.

The event was filled with pride and achievements as nine (9) of our graduates received the esteemed title of Ontario Scholars, attaining a place on the honour roll and one (1) graduate received a French Language Certificate, in addition to their high school diplomas.

Our principal, academic director, teachers, and coaches also delivered inspiring speeches, instilling a sense of accomplishment and ambition in the graduates’ hearts. Additionally, Ryan Male, our alumni and last year’s student-athlete of the year gave an inspiring speech about his relationship with basketball and how his experience at Uchenna Academy provided an opportunity to realize his hidden potential, on and off the court.

The food for the evening was from South Pacific, a local restaurant our students often visit for their lunch meals. In addition to providing the most delicious meals, the store’s wonderful owners, Susie and Alex, provided three (3) gift cards for students with the highest academic averages.
