Suri Cruise Celebrates High School Graduation with Mom Katie Holmes, Drops Dad Tom’s Last Name at Ceremony

Congratulations to Suri Cruise,18, who is officially a high school graduate!

The daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise celebrated getting her diploma from LaGuardia High School on Friday with her mom by her side.

In photos and video obtained by Page Six, she could be seen ringing in the milestone moment by snapping pics with Holmes and a friend in New York City, where she resides.

The teen was also photographed animatedly hugging another recent graduate.

Suri, 18, looked thrilled as she posed with Holmes, 45, for photos outside a brick building before heading into the United Palace Theatre, located in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

She rocked a dainty, white dress under her red graduation robe, and paired the ensemble with white sandals that had floral embellishments on them. Her brunette hair was styled down.

Holmes, meanwhile, opted for a matching set that consisted of light yellow pleated pants and a collared long-sleeve shirt.

Suri’s father, Tom, was not present at the special event, as they have been estranged for most of her life. He instead attended Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in London.

It was even revealed in the teen’s graduation ceremony pamphlet that she goes by “Suri Noelle” and seemingly does not use her famous dad’s last name.

Suri is expected to attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh in the fall.

On Tuesday night, she looked all grown up as she headed to senior prom with her friends and a brunette date, who was seen holding her by her waist.

Suri opted to wear ’90s-inspired floral gown, which featured a bustier top and maroon piping.

She channeled her mom with her brown hair styled in a half-up, half-down hairdo.

The brunette beauty is Holmes’ only child. Since the “Dawson Creek” alum’s split from Tom in 2012, she has not remarried.

I don't blame her for dropping Tom's last name (Cruise isn't even his government name -- it's Mapother) especially when the moment Katie brilliantly hatched a plan to escape that fake religion known as Scientology, he never partook in Suri's life.
