It’s been quiet around Donald Trump and his family following their departure from the White House in January. That also goes for his youngest son, Barron Trump, who has been seen just once in public.
Now, however, news on his future comes to light. And it appears that the Trump family plans to stay in Florida, where they’ve lived since January.
In a short announcement a spokesperson for the elite school Oxbridge Academy in Palm Beach announced that Barron Trump is enrolled as part of the class of 2024.
First, let’s take a look at Barron’s siblings. He has two half-brothers and two half-sisters from two of Donald Trump’s earlier marriages. Donald Jr. was born in 1977, Ivanka in 1981 and Eric arrived in 1984.
Barron Trump – Donald Trump’s youngest son
Donald Trump and ex-wife Ivana divorced in 1992, but it didn’t take long before the future – and now former – president was married again. One year later, in 1993, he married Marla Maples. Together, they had a daughter, Tiffany.
Following their divorce in 1999, Donald Trump would go on to be married once again. In 2006, he married Melania Trump.
Melania gave birth to son Barron that same year, and 10 years later, in 2016, Barron would become the first boy to live in the White House in over 50 years.
But we’ll get to that in a minute. Several of Donald’s children, including Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr, have been involved in his presidency, working closely with their father and his staff.
They have found themselves in the spotlight, doing interviews, press conferences and appearances on television almost every night.
But 15-year-old Barron has been kept away from the searing gaze of the world. Instead, he’s been able to focus on his own life, with parents Donald and Melania wanting him to have the privacy every child is entitled to.
And now, it seams like he will continue on his upper class journey, with Barron to attend a very prestigious private school.
Barron Trump – childhood
Barron Trump was born March 20, 2006, in New York City. Much of his childhood was spent growing up in Trump Tower in Manhattan, where he was said to have an entire floor to himself.
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 of luxury.
Speaking with Parenting, mother Melania Trump revealed that Barron loved planes and helicopters as a young child. She always made sure to cook 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 added. “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 growing up, Melania made sure that Barron got quality time with his father, and the two often went out for dinner together. As he grew older, Barron also joined his father on the golf course.
“It’s very important to know the person you’re with. And we know our roles,” Melania explained.
Ever since he was a young child, Barron’s mother took the time to help him with his homework.
Melania Trump is of Slovenian descent. Because of that, she raised Barron to be bilingual, and when he calls his grandmother in Slovenia, he speaks Slovenian.
Both her and Donald Trump agree that the more languages you speak, the better. His father told Larry King that he “loves” that Barron speaks with a Slovenian accent. One can assume these days that the accent is gone, since he’s gone to school in the US.
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.
After finishing 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 W. Bush 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 has attended Sidwell Friends instead.
Melania praised the school for “its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.” Since Joe Biden was elected,
Melania has been looking at new schools in Florida. It’s been speculated that – just as many other Trump family members – Barron will head to one of the more prestigious schools. And now, it’s been decided on where he will continue his high school education.
To attend Florida private school
A spokesperson for the private school Oxbridge Academy has confirmed that Barron Trump will 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, and 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 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.
Rarely seen in public
“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.
During Donald Trump’s presidency, Barron Trump wasn’t seen that often. He’s was mostly spotted traveling with his parents, boarding and leaving Air Force One or his father’s helicopter.
Oftentimes, those occasions have been in connection with the Trump family returning or leaving for their holiday trips to Mar-a-Lago in Florida. That’s also where Donald Trump and his family decided to travel 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, especially since being the president’s son can be a demanding thing.
In April of 2018, however, he had made a rare public appearance at the annual White House Egg Roll.
Being the son of the president means having your every move tracked. That’s why Melania Trump has been very keen on not letting Barron issue statements of his own.
Melania handles communication
Instead, all communication go through Melania, as well as her office of communications.
A good example of that was in June of 2020, when a media controversy involving Food Network host John Hanson happened. At that point, it was Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham who responded on both her and Barron’s behalf.
It’s been quiet from the entire Trump family following Donald Trump leaving the White House. However, new pictures show 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, he seems even taller!
New, rare picture of Barron Trump
The new picture was snapped in New York City 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 is short — he’s only 6-foot-6.”
