According to the Associated Press, Sean “Diddy” Combs’ new school, Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School, will open this fall. The founder of Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut, Dr. Steve Perry, will oversee the school while Orlando, Florida-based educator Danita Jones will be its inaugural principal.
“I want to impact the lives of young people in my community, and build future leaders. The first step is offering access to a quality education,” Combs said. “Every young person should have the tools they need to succeed. All our children should be able to pursue their dreams. That is something I can impact with this school.”
The school, already accepting applications, will begin with enrolling students from grades 6-7, before expanding to grades 6th through 12th.
