President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son, Barron, will attend St Andrew’s Episcopal School outside Washington when he moves into the White House this summer.
Barron Trump and his mother, Melania, are expected to leave Trump Tower in New York after the end of the current school year.
He will go to St Andrew’s Episcopal School in Maryland, where tuition costs almost $40,000 per year.
There had been questions about when the First Family would move to Washington.
First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement that St Andrew’s was “known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence”, adding: “We look forward to the coming school years.”
Barron Trump will be the first child of a president to attend the school, which is a 30-minute drive from the White House.
St Andrew’s has refused to comment on their newest student, citing reasons of privacy.
Former First Daughters Sasha and Malia Obama have attended Sidwell Friends, a Quaker school with campuses in Washington and Maryland.
The White House announcement comes after St Andrew’s sent a letter to parents on May 12, informing them of the First Family’s decision.
According to the Washington Post, St Andrew’s had intended to wait until the summer to make the announcement in order to stave off possible protests while school was in session.
However, after parents began to hear rumors, the school sent out a letter, prompting today’s statement from the White House.
