(Newser) – Now that Suri Cruise has escaped the grips of Scientology and mom Katie Holmes has returned to Catholicism, it's off to the Convent of the Sacred Heart school this fall for the 6-year-old. Suri will be one of 690 females ranging from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade at the all-girl school, and forget her high heels—she'll be wearing a uniform of white blouse, button-down jumper, and white and red pinafore, E! reports in a look at the $39,265-per-year institution (which was also attended by Lady Gaga and Nicky Hilton, among others). Mass attendance is required every Thursday, the Daily Mail adds.

What kind of education will she be getting for all that money? Sounds like a good one: Both French and Spanish are introduced in kindergarten, Latin comes in 7th grade, and Arabic, Greek, and Mandarin are also offered. There's one faculty member for every seven students, and the school—which features Apple TVs in every classroom—is known as one of the best in New York City. The extracurricular offerings are just as vast, with more than 40 activities available; the school contains, among other things, three performance spaces and a darkroom studio. Oh, and did we mention all the students from 8th grade on are issued iPads? (In other Suri news, she and mom Katie are OK after their limo was hit by a garbage truck last night—click to see pictures.)

From the insanity of Scientology to the Church of the Holy Child Molesters, great choice.

Academically, the school sounds fantastic. What a shame that they'll also be indoctrinating her into the Catholic Faith too. Hopefully, Suri will remember her experiences with Scientology and realize that Catholicism is every bit as crazy.

That school sounds amazing. I hope she does well there and doesn't get harassed too much. Poor kid.
