Cross Creek Early College High School Reviews

Cross Creek was by far a wonderful school that helped prepare me for college. My teachers, at least, my high school teachers, were fantastic. The classes are small, but that's because only 75 freshmen are accepted every year. This allows us to be more involved, and you really get to know your classmates. My high school teachers expected nothing less than the best from us and encouraged us to aim for success, not to settle for any college. The program is very tedious, as by sophomore year you begin taking your first college classes, and by the time you are a senior you are taking almost all college classes. Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a mandatory class that functions as a study hall and promotes proper study habits and is taken every year. Parents are always involved, as every semester is a Parent-Student Conference that is a major grade in AVID.

CROSS CREEK EARLY COLLEGE, THE MOST CHALLENGING 4 YEARS OF MY LIFE. THIS SCHOOL WAS AMAZING TO ME, THEY DID THEIR ABSOLUTE BEST TO HELP ME IN THE TOUGH SITUATION THAT I WAS IN. THE INSTRUCTORS REALLY GUIDED ME ON WHAT ROUTE TO TAKE AS AN IMMIGRANT STUDENT WHO COULD NOT REALLY AFFORD COLLEGE, AND AT THE TIME, DID NOT QUALIFY FOR FINANCIAL AID. ALTHOUGH THE WORK LOAD WAS VERY STRESSFUL, AND IT WAS NOT A TRADITIONAL HIGH SCHOOL (SO "FUN" WAS NOT REALLY IN THE PICTURE) I ENJOYED THE PRESSURE, AND THE AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THE COLLEGE ATMOSPHERE AND INTERACT WITH COLLEGE STUDENTS. I GRADUATED WITH 62 TOTAL COLLEGE CREDITS, AND AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF PREPARATION AND SKILLS. I GRADUATED IN 2017 WITH THE PERSEVERANCE TITLE. I AM NOW A INSURANCE AGENT AND SOON TO BE MANAGER AT AGE 19. THIS SCHOOL MORE THAN PREPARED ME FOR WHATS TO COME OF MY CAREER. I THANK GOD AND EVERYONE IN MY CORNER FOR BEING A PART OF MY HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE.
Being at Cross Creek Early College molded me into a more responsible student. Since the coursework is at a fast pace, I had to stay organized and studious. I enjoyed being at Cross Creek because of the small classroom environment. I got the one on one attention that I needed which made my understanding of the subject stronger. The atmosphere at Cross Creek is positive and warm. Students are constantly encouraging other students and the teachers want whats best for the students. There's not much I would change at my school, but if there was, I would change the simple fact that we don't have sports. I am an athlete and I enjoy playing sports, but without sports at my school, I didn't have the chance to play the sports I love.
