Barron Trump is settling in at his new school in West Palm Beach, Florida. He’s already had two weeks at Oxbridge Academy, where he’ll hopefully graduate from in 2024.
The youngest son of the former President’s life has been very private until now, as he hasn’t been seen in public often. But new details as to his new school in the southern state of Florida have come to light.
The Sun reports that Barron Trump will be served some great food at the school, and will also be taught lessons in kindness.
It will come as no surprise that Donald Trump’s net worth is truly staggering, and as a result, Barron grew up in a world where he wanted for nothing.
Barron Trump – early life
Speaking with Parenting, Melania Trump revealed that Barron loved planes and helicopters as a young child. She always made sure to make his breakfast, as well as prepare his lunch. Even though they had a very luxurious lifestyle, they didn’t have a traditional nanny.
“Barron is 9 years old. He needs somebody as a parent there, so I am with him all the time,” Melania said in a 2015 People interview. “As you know my husband is traveling all the time.”
“We keep it down to a minimum,” Trump himself added, as to the nanny situation. “If you have too much help, you don’t get to know your children.”
Melania revealed that Barron was very much into creating things as a young boy, and his mother was supportive of that. Barron was said to even draw on the walls.
“In his space, the décor style of the rest of our home is mixed with what he is into: planes and helicopters,” Melania told Parenting, as quoted by Metro.
“We let him be creative; let his imagination fly and do whatever he wants. Whatever he wants to do with his own room later on, he can do it. Whatever he wants to do with his own room he can do it. He draws on the walls, we can paint it over.”
Raised by Melania
“When he was smaller, he started drawing on the walls,” she added. “His imagination is growing and important. He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over. One day he was playing bakery and he wrote ‘Barron’s Bakery’ on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child ‘no, no, no,’ where does the creativity go?”
Growing up, his mother Melania was was closest to Barron. Donald worked plenty, and he explained to Larry King in 2005 that he was a fairly hands-off parent.
“I’m not going to be doing the diapers,” Trump said. “I’m not going to be making the food, I may never even see the kids.”
All the same, Barron loves spending time with his dad. When Barron was younger, Melania made sure that Barron got quality time with his father, and the two oftentimes went out for dinner together. As he grew older, Barron also joined his father on the golf course.
Ever since he was a young child, Barron’s mother took the time to help him with his homework.
So how about Barron Trump’s schooling? Well, best guesses are that after his high school graduation, he will, as many other Trump family members have done, head to one of the more prestigious schools. In actual fact, he is already attending one now.
Barron Trump – school
When Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, Melania decided that she and Barron would stay in New York City for about six months so he could finish up his school year, several media outlets reported.
“It’s Melania who wants to stay. She doesn’t want to take Barron out of school,” an unnamed source told the New York Daily News.
“She’s concerned that he won’t have the same relationship with new teachers that he has at Columbia Prep.”
Barron Trump went to the prestigious Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School – a two-century old, non-secular private school – in New York City.
When he was finished with school in “The Big Apple”, Barron and Melania headed for the White House. Barron then became the first boy to live in the White House since JFK Jr.
Barack Obama, George Bush Jr and Bill Clinton – the three most recent presidents – have been fathers to only girls. Other presidents since JFK have had sons, though they’ve all been adult and lived outside of the White House.
When Barron moved into the White House, he also became the first presidential child to attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland. Every president’s child over the last 35 years had previously attended Sidwell Friends instead.
Barron Trump – Oxbridge Academy
Melania praised the school for “its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.” Since Joe Biden was elected, and Donald Trump therefore essentially lost his job, Melania had been looking at new schools in Florida.
Now, it’s been decided where he will continue his high-school education.
A spokesperson for the private school Oxbridge Academy confirmed that Barron Trump would enroll at the high school, as part of the class of 2024.
“We look forward to welcoming him into our school and community,” the school’s Director of Advancement Scott Siegfried said, as quoted by People.
On its website, the Oxbridge Academy writes that they’re “committed to providing both merit scholarships and generous financial aid in an effort to attract the most qualified students and to make Oxbridge financially feasible.”
The tuition to attend Oxbridge’s private school for the 2021-2022 year is $34,800, according to its website.
For Barron, this will surely be a new beginning. At the same time, it seems like there’s plenty to do on campus. According to The List, the school offers sports such as basketball, swimming, track & field, and golf. They even have a flight simulator at the school.
Furthermore, it also has clubs and different activities that students can participate in, such as the National Honor Society. Also, all students at the school are required to have an Apple laptop.
Being taught lessons of kindness
Just a couple of weeks after it was announced, Barron Trump seems to have started the new school year, as first reported by The Sun.
Barron started school about two weeks ago, and now, the world has gotten its first insight into what he’s going through at school.
According to the lunch menu, the son of the former President can enjoy chicken wings, grilled chicken, Maple Miso salmon and vegetarian burgers, as well as gnocchi, and even breakfast at Thursdays.
When it comes to education, it seems like Barron will also learn how to be a great friend. The school reportedly imparts lessons of kindness upon its students.
On Tuesday, the school posted a picture of students wearing masks on Twitter.
“Oxbridge’s Culture of Kindness includes learning how to listen and pay attention not just to what someone is saying, but how they are saying it,” the tweet read.
“Eighth graders Charlie Wiggle, Margaret Toner, and Marco Raffinengo participate in this exercise in dignity and respect,” ending with “#kindness.”
It’s not known if Barron Trump will participate in any of the school athletics. However, it is known that he’s very much into soccer.
Secret Service to be at campus
In a CBS Interview, Trump said that American football was a dangerous sport, considering the risks of getting head injuries, adding that his son would rather run after a soccer ball.
Previously, Barron has played for DC United’s under-12s, as well as Arlington Soccer Association’s under-14 teams.
“When my son heard [president of FIFA Gianni Infantino] was going to be [in Washington], he said, ‘Dad, I’d like to meet him,’” Donald Trump recalled in 2018. “Barron loves soccer. And soccer has to be one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.”
Being the son of a former president also means protection, which Barron will get. But for the Oxbridge Academy, handling the Secret Service will be a completely new experience.
“They want to have little impact on our day-to-day operations. They’ve done this for other former presidents’ kids. They’re fantastic,” Scott Siegfried told The Palm Beach Post.
It looks like it’s not just Melania, Donald and Barron that will be staying in the southern state of Florida. The former President’s other children have also bought properties, with Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump now being neighbors.
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are also in the process of building their new home after buying a piece of land on the private island of Indian Creek, Florida.
Barron Trump rarely seen in public
The only one that’s missing from the Trump family is Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, who also’s rumored to be looking for a new home in Miami.
During Donald Trump’s presidency, Barron wasn’t seen that often. He was mostly spotted traveling with his parents, either boarding or leaving Air Force One or his father’s helicopter.
Oftentimes, those occasions were in connection with the Trump family returning or leaving on their holiday trips to Mar-a-Lago in Florida. That’s also where Donald and his family decided to relocate to following his last day in the White House.
Melania Trump was very clear throughout their time in the White House that she was keen on protecting her son from scrutiny, since being the president’s son can be a demanding thing. She actually took care of any statements or comments made by Barron.
It’s been relatively quiet from the entire Trump family following Donald Trump’s leaving of the White House. However, pictures from earlier this summer showed Melania and Barron Trump in New York City, and now, people can’t stop talking about Barron.
Why? Well, simply put, he’s grown into a very, very tall boy, and he’s likely not finished growing yet.
Even though Barron Trump only just turned 15, he is reportedly already 6 feet 7 inches tall. Seeing him stand shoulder-to-shoulder with his 5-foot-11-inch mom Melania makes him seem even taller!
New, rare picture of Barron Trump
The new picture was snapped in as Barron and Melania left their Manhattan home at the Trump Tower.
According to the Daily Mail, Barron is carrying his mother’s rare Louis Vuitton bag. If you want one for yourself, you’d have to pay $3,995.
Even though Barron is only 15, he’s already the tallest person in his family.
Trump is “only” 6-feet-3. And last month, he actually spoke of his son’s height.
“Barron is 6-foot-7, can you believe it? And he’s 15,” Trump said, jokingly adding: “Eric (Trump) is short — he’s only 6-foot-6.”
