Suri Cruise: Dreaming about first grade?   (Buzz60)

(Newser) – Suri Cruise isn't going to be a Catholic school girl after all. She's about to book it to a new institution of learning, the for-profit $40,000-a-year Avenues World School that overlooks the High Line park in Chelsea, just blocks from Suri and Katie Holmes' Manhattan home. The ultra-tony 215,000-square-foot school opens this fall for the first time. It's going to specialize in a global learning perspective and bilingual education (so 6-year-old Suri will be experiencing half-day immersion in Spanish or Mandarin).

The school, founded by education and media entrepreneur Chris Whittle, is intended to be the flagship of an international "learning community" of some 20 schools that will be established throughout the world and in other US cities over the next few years, according to its website. "Suri’s really excited about it,” a source told Life & Style magazine.

The elite are getting ready for the change to a one world government/society. I guess that's smart of them, though.

No doubt this was done in response to complaints from Tom. If he tries to indoctrinate her into Scientology and/or spoil her rotten, Katie can charge him with "alienation of affection."

In 10 years or so she'll be on Celebrity Rehab.
