In November, President-elect Trump and his wife Melania announced that the family will keep their son Barron enrolled in his New York City-based day school rather than moving to Washington, D.C. right away.

A spokesperson for the Trump’s noted that there is “obviously a sensitivity to pulling out a 10-year-old in the middle of the school year.”

Barron attends Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

The elite school runs students about $47,000 a year.

If Barron’s $47,000-a-year tuition payment seems steep, it’s nothing compared to the cost of secret service protection in New York City for the first family, which is estimated to be $1 million a day.
