Suri Cruise will attend a $40,000-a-year private school
The six-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has been enrolled in Avenues, a new educational establishment opening in New York later this year.
A source told Life & Style magazine: "Katie has eagerly been telling Suri all about the lunchrooms, basketball courts and different activities Avenues offers. Suri`s really excited about it."
Katie and Suri have made a fresh start in the city following Katie`s split from Tom and the school is just a few blocks from their apartment in Chelsea.
The building has a rooftop playground, along with a main gym that includes full-size basketball and volleyball courts.
It is part of a series of "world schools" and will also have branches in China, India, Africa and Europe, along with other US cities.
Suri`s dad is looking for a "secluded" property in `The Big Apple` with a "suburban presence" so the youngster can play in private when she stays with him.
A source previously said: "He wants something extremely secluded where Suri can play without paparazzi watching. There are lots of them in these towns."
Although the Hollywood superstar is keeping the couple`s former home in Beverly Hills - which he shares with his eldest children, Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Connor - he is determined to have a permanent base in New York for his time with Suri.
