Mogul, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs announced on Monday, March 28th, the creation and upcoming launch of his Capital Preparatory Harlem charter school, scheduled to open in Harlem this fall. The mogul and Harlem native, approached Capital Preparatory Schools in 2011 with his idea of opening a school in his hometown, with the goal of expanding educational opportunities for young men and women in Harlem and building leaders from the community.  Over the next five years, Combs worked with the founder of Capital Prep, Dr. Steve Perry, to build community support and enlist a team of educators, parents and business leaders to bring the idea to fruition.

Creating this school is a dream come true for me, Combs said. 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. Capital Prep Harlem is currently accepting applications for students in the 6th and 7th grades, with plans to expand a grade each year until it enrolls 700 students in grades 6-12.

“I’m inspired by Sean Combs’ belief that educating our young people is the key to opening up a world of opportunity for them,” Dr. Perry said. “Sean and I have spent many long hours over the last five years talking about education and how best to meet the needs of the young people of Harlem, and I couldn’t be more pleased to continue this journey through the opening of the school.”
