A new, and yet-to-be-opened, school for the uber-wealthy plans to establish itself — of course — at Trump Tower in New York City. Its founder, Jonathan Cheban, has a background in PR and entrepreneurship, but is perhaps better known as a “bestie” of Kim Kardashian.
In an interview with New You magazine, Cheban explained that his school, the International School of New York, will advise “wealthy kids” on such tricky topics as selecting the perfect diamond, choosing the best leather for the interior of their private jet, understanding the different types of caviar, plus “other fundamental undergrad and grad classes.”
“This is the social stuff you need to know to survive in a city like this with a lot of money," Cheban told the publication.
The cost for tutorship at the school was not immediately available. For comparison, Institut Villa Pierrefeu, a historic finishing school in Switzerland that offers “bespoke” six-week courses on subjects such as wine pairing and diplomatic protocol, runs a cool $20,000 per session.
