School’s out.

Alan Greenberg – founder of the exclusive, for-profit Avenues: The World School – sold his condo at the Trump International Hotel & Tower for $10.3 million after almost two decades in the luxury building.

The apartment went to an anonymous buyer, listed as “1CPW30A LLC” in documents filed with the city Tuesday.

The 2,094-square-foot unit on the 30th floor of 1 Central Park West has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and views over Central Park.

“We’re basically downsizing,” Greenberg told The Real Deal, “All of our kids have left.”

The couple’s primary residence is in Atlanta, Greenberg said, and they also have a vacation home at the Four Seasons Hotel in Surfside, Florida.

He said leaving Trump Tower after so many years was “bittersweet” and he will miss the views from the apartment.

The Greenbergs bought the unit furnished for $10.6 million in 2012. They are selling it unfurnished for $300,000 less.

They previously owned a smaller apartment in the building, which they bought in 2000, and sold in 2013 for $5.5 million.

Greenberg is the co-founder of Avenues: The World School, a for-profit private school system with one New York campus at 259 10th Avenue in West Chelsea. Yearly tuition at the school, which includes including MacBooks and iPads, costs $56,400.

The opening of the 1,600-seat private school in 2012 spurred an uptick in condo sales in West Chelsea.

And Avenues is planning to expand. In November, 2018 The Real Deal reported that Robert Fisher, the heir to the Gap family fortune, bought the former Archbishop Curley Notre-Dame High School site in Little Haiti, Miami for $60 million. Sources said Fisher plans to bring an Avenues school to the site.

In August 2018, the company opened a campus in São Paulo, Brazil.
