Katie enrols Suri into Gaga school

2012-07-16 13:22
Los Angeles - Katie Holmes has enrolled her six-year-old daughter into the same Catholic school Lady Gaga once attended.

The 33-year-old actress - who was given primary custody of Suri after her divorce settlement with estranged husband Tom Cruise was agreed last week - wants her little girl to be educated at New York's Convent of the Sacred Heart School and she will start there this autumn.

Katie is said to be keen for Suri to get a Catholic education instead of the Scientology upbringing Tom reportedly wanted her to have.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Suri - who was previously home-schooled - will start her classes on 6 September, which will be the youngster's first open classroom format.

'Oldest independent school'

The curriculum at Sacred Heart is thought to be extremely strict, requiring students to attend Mass every Thursday, while tuition reportedly costs $38 000 a year.

As well as Lady Gaga, former students at the school - which calls itself on its website "the oldest independent school for girls in New York City" - also include Caroline Kennedy, actress Jordana Brewster and Paris Hilton.

Katie filed for divorce from 50-year-old Tom last month and sources claim one of the reasons behind the split was Tom's desire to have Suri attend a Scientology school like his two other children, Isabella,19, and 17-year-old Connor.

However, they have denied they clashed over their beliefs and released a statement saying: "We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri's best interests.

"We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other's roles as parents."
