Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, aka Tom Cruise, is an American actor who was born on July 3, 1962 in Syracuse, New York. Cruise is the third child of Mary Lee and Thomas Cruise Mapother III. He has two older sisters, Lee Anne and Marian, and a younger sister, Cass.
In 2006, Cruise married his third wife, Katie Holmes, amid much speculation that the marriage was a publicity stunt. Cruise has also been questioned for his support and adherence to the Church of Scientology. EDUinReview will now take a look at this somewhat-controversial actor’s education background.
Cruise did not have much stability in his early life, and as a result, he attended eight different elementary schools and three different high schools. He attended Robert Hopkins Public Schools during third, fourth, and fifth grade. He attended Henry Munro Middle school during sixth grade. It was at this time that Cruise became involved in athletics. He was a very competitive and talented floor hockey player, and chipped his tooth during a game.
