Private Schools Of The Rich And Famous

They may have been living the high life since birth, but that doesn’t mean they’re exempt from homework! Yup, the children of celebrities have to go to school just like everyone else. But these wealthy kiddos and their famous parents often opt for education outside of their local public school system. From Santa Monica’s Crossroads School to New York City’s Avenues: The World School, people like Suri Cruise and the Jolie-Pitt brood have educations that are far superior to what many of us grew up with. But what exactly goes on in these exclusive institutions?

When it came to their childrens’ education, people like Madonna chose a French method. She enrolled her daughter, Lourdes Leon, at the Lycée Français de New York, where tuition will cost you almost as much as a college undergraduate degree – parents who enroll their kids at this private school pay about $38,050 per year!

Other famous alumni of Lycée Français include four of Angelina Jolie’s bunch; Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh. The curriculum at this school is based on that used in France.
