Suri Cruise leaves Chelsea Piers. Katie Holmes reportedly enrolled her in a pricey private school near their Chelsea apartment.

Suri Cruise is set to start first grade in style at a pricey new Manhattan private school this year.

Katie Holmes enrolled 6-year-old Suri at Avenues, a nearly $40,000-a-year school set to open this fall, Life & Style reported.

“Katie has eagerly been telling Suri all about the lunchrooms, basketball courts and different activities Avenues offers. Suri’s really excited about it,” a source told the magazine.

The Chelsea school, which overlooks the High Line and isn’t far from Holmes’ apartment in the same neighborhood, boasts a rooftop playground and a fitness center, plus a gym with full-sized basketball and volleyball courts.

The for-profit Tenth Ave. school stresses bilingual education, so Suri will learn in Mandarin or Spanish in addition to English.

The so-called “world school” plans to open branches in China, India, Africa, and Europe.

Avenues is run by entrepreneur Chris Whittle and was funded by two private equity investors.

Contacted by the Daily News, Avenues spokesman Bruce Bobbins said, “We don’t make any comment on any perspective student, current student, family member, anything.”

Previous reports claimed Suri would attend the prestigious all-girls Catholic school Convent of the Sacred Heart on the upper East Side, where Caroline Kennedy and Lady Gaga are among alumnae.
