Although he was not on hand for the ceremony in Stratford, Ontario, the 18-year-old now holds a diploma as a graduating member of the class of 2012 at St. Michael Catholic Secondary School.

In May, the teen heartthrob told Britain's The Daily Telegraph he'd just finished his very last exam and he was flying high with excitement. "I'm free! It was hard doing school and work every day."

He adds, "That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her. I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life. I've been able to travel the world. At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I'm really not into that stuff. I like to be out there."

In the fall (Sept. 29), Bieber will begin his North American tour for Believe with stops in Los Angeles, New York and Toronto.
