I love the overall experience at Cross Creek Early College High School. Everyone is like family; we help one another stretch beyond boundaries to explore and view academics in different perspectives to enhance learning.
The overall faculty and student morale is good and cultivates an environment for wanting to be involved in something greater-better for the school and the community. I would not change anything about Cross Creek Early College- it is absoultely perfect!

Cross Creek Early College High School was founded on the Fayetteville State University campus. This is my home away from home. Every day I am given the opportunity to get an amazing education.
We are a family and the five things that we live by our relationships, responsibility, relevance, respect, and rigor. All of my teachers are unique in their own way. There is Ms. Howard, my energetic Chemistry teacher. Mr. Huffman, my cool Social Studies teacher who was in a rock band. Mr. Hosking, the living library English teacher, and Ms. Merritt, the all-knowing college prep teacher. All them are very unique, but one thing they all have in common is their passion to teach. They challenge me in and out of the classroom. Now that I am a senior, I am taking only college classes. My teachers have given me the confidence to take the higher level math or higher level science class. They are always there to support their students to think critically, see a problem, and come up with a solution.
Academics are great. Also good for getting a headstart if you plan on applying to UNC schools that'll accept credits, which most if not all do. A lot of students find their time eaten up by the sheer amount of work given and the abundance of volunteer hours required.
As for other aspects, FSU campus leaves something to be desired. CCEC has no sports. No gym. No homecoming. Mediocre, repetitive food. Clubs may as well not exist. Most only take place for 15 minutes on Fridays and are hard to attend as an upperclassmen that is unwilling to compromise his or her college schedule.

Overall it's great, but you may want to consider outsourcing for extracurriculars.
