Melania visits $35K-a-year Pine Crest school in Florida for Barron as the Trumps prepare for life after White House
There are rumors that the first lady has toured the Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, which is 40 minutes away from Mar-a-Lago, which boasts of star alumini ncluding pop star Ariana Grande
Although the soon-to-be-ex first family has not yet mentioned where they planned to move after President Donald Trump wraps up his first term on January 20 and moves out of the White House, handing the reins to President-elect Joe Biden, Melania Trump has already started looking for schools in Florida where Barron can be reportedly admitted, suggesting that the first family might be deciding to move to Mar-a-Lago, their Palm Beach resort.
There are rumors that the first lady has toured the Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, which is 40 minutes away from Mar-a-Lago which teaches students from grades nine to 12 and costs more than $35,000 a year. Hence, it seems likely that the FLOTUS might be considering that institute for her 14-year-old son, Barron after she and her husband leave Washington DC.
The glitzy private school's alumni include pop star Ariana Grande, actor Kelsey Grammer and TV star Bethenny Frankel. Its website boasts of teaching students to "change the world" and teaches "empathy, integrity, character" to the pupils among other things. However, there might be one major hindrance to the Trumps getting their son admitted to the school. The school requires parents to disclose their personal and business tax returns before enrollment, something that Trump has been reluctant to do throughout his presidency even amid increased pressure from the Democrats.
Despite the floating rumors, the Trumps are yet to confirm where they plan to move after they leave the White House. It is only being speculated that they might choose to live in or near their Palm Beach resort. "They have looked all over Palm Beach County and neighboring Broward County for just the right place," a source reportedly told People. "There are several options, and they will decide soon."
Gossip columns have pinned down Mar-a-Lago as Trump's future home as it has been a favorite of Trump during his presidency. So much so that it was even dubbed the "Winter White House". "They are looking at schools for Barron and also looking for homes near Mar-a-Lago to purchase," a source said.
"The thought is they will stay at Mar-a-Lago initially after leaving the White House.”
Barron currently attends St Andrew's Episcopal School in the suburbs of D.C. After finishing up his schooling in New York during the first six months of his dad's term, he stayed with Trump and Melania in the White House since June 2017.
It was also reported that the private club was undergoing renovations ahead of the president and his family's arrival. “They are definitely renovating his apartment within the Mar-a-Lago Club to make it larger, more modern, and comfortable for his use," one insider said. Another said: “Mar-a-Lago is iconic, a building he took great pride in renovating when he bought it. It makes sense that he wants to be there and will make the mansion his home.”
We previously reported that Melania is already sorting out her belongings, deciding what to put in storage, items to be transported to the Trump Tower in New York City and what else to be tagged for shipment to the couple's Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. She is apparently, doing all these while trying to discreetly find out what was available to her in terms of budget and staff allowance for post-White House life.
