Suri Cruise may be the world's most famous 6-year old, but she was feeling much like any other first-grader on Tuesday morning, as she embarked on her most nerve-wracking adventure - her first day of school.

The daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes started her first day at New York's newest private school today.

Accompanied by her mother Katie Holmes, the youngster arrived holding onto her pink school bag tightly, and wearing a coordinating pink bow, reported Enterntainmentwise. The little fashionista was sporting a grey cardigan and white shirt, as the Avenues uniform policy has asked its pupils to stick to white, grey and black.

It is the first time Suri, who has so far been educated at home, will attend school and according to sources she is “really excited” to start.

Katie and Suri were driven to school in a large gray SUV, but there was no sign of Tom Cruise.  RadarOnline had previously reported that the recently divorced couple were planning on setting aside their differences so they could both be there for Suri's big day. But that did not seem to happen.

Enrolling her at Avenues, and not a Scientology school or home education, is part of Katie Holmes' attempt to give Suri a 'normal life' following the star's divorce from Tom Cruise.
