Drake has an important new commendation to add to his awards shelf: A high school diploma.

After years in the limelight as a rapper and actor, the 25-year-old star went back to the drawing board this summer to complete the coursework necessary to graduate from high school. On Twitter last night, Drake said it was mission accomplished.

"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!" he wrote. "Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND."

Drake, who has been on a break from touring the past few months, first revealed that he was pursuing his diploma in an interview in August. The YMCMB rapper acted on the popular Canadian teen series Degrassi: The Next Generation from the age of 15 to 22 and never finished high school.
