Cross Creek Early College High School

  • Words of Inspiration from Graduation: 

    “As you face life challenges, I want you to use the skills you learned to push yourself, advocate for yourself, make good choices and always focus on what’s best for you! Your diploma will provide you with many opportunities to come. I want each of you to leave here with high expectations and don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way.”
    - Christian Qually, Principal

    “The last four years here have been far from conventional and the path we took to be here at this moment was full of bends and hills. Yet, no matter how hard the journey was to get here today, you still made it, and I want that to be a testament to the perseverance and fortitude that you all have. The path forward from this day is going to be even windier, and there are going to be days where you will question if the path you chose was worth it. I want you to look back at this day and remember that you have made the hard journey once before, so you can do it again.”                         
    – Christopher Addaman, Valedictorian

    “As we prepare to embark on the next phase of our journey and the challenges we must face, let us reflect on the lessons we have learned and the experiences that have shaped us into the individuals we are today. More than any other class we exemplify the trait of resilience. Starting in 2024, we simultaneously faced two of the most difficult challenges a teenager can face: transitioning into high school and living through a pandemic ... I’ve observed how you all epitomize perseverance in the face of adversity, the importance of collaboration and teamwork, and the power of resilience in overcoming obstacles.”            
    – Talon Alexander, Salutatorian
