Matt Damon’s kids rejected by private school

Matt DamonOscar gold doesn’t always have sway.

Academy Award-winner Matt Damon is facing difficulty relocating his family from Los Angeles to New York — specifically when it comes to enrolling his kids in school.

According to the New York Post‘s gossip column Page Six, the Jason Bourne star was trying to get his three daughters with wife Luciana Barroso admitted to St. Ann’s — an exclusive Brooklyn Heights private school — but was rejected.

Apparently, the school told Matt that its classes for next year are booked and there simply isn’t room for his girls, namely Isabella, Gia and Stella.

An insider said, “A lot of schools will bend the rules very happily; they’ll bring celebrities’ kids in midway through the year or do whatever they want. St. Ann’s just isn’t doing it.”

“They don’t care,” the source added.

St. Ann’s has a deep and rich alumni, including Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham and designer Zac Posen, and is currently the institution where Ethan Hawke and Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s children are being educated.

Tuition at the prestigious school runs between $36,080 and $42,555 per year depending on the grade. Students from pre-K to high school are welcome to enroll.

…Or at least welcome to enroll well in advance.

    Lilliana misses the point! Private schools have limited registration so that each student receives maximum instruction time. The school is not being snobbish – just attempting to maintain highest quality or their students. Comprising rules just to placate some celebrity would jeopardize quality. Matt Damon seems like a regular fellow and, I’m sure, accepts that concept.

    He isn’t looking for favors, he’ll just try the next school on his list. gossip writers seem to like to make controversies when there are not any.

    Who cares? That’s his personal business and non of ours.

    Why do we even know about this? Because someone from the school leaked this to the press. Yeah, great school…
