Sean “P.Diddy” Combs opened a charter school called “Capital Prep” in Harlem,NY on this past Monday. The school is set to open for the 2016-17 school year, with 160 students in sixth and seventh grades. School officials said it would expand one grade per year, eventually enrolling 700 students in grades six through 12. It is currently accepting applications for students and staff members.
Growing up in Harlem I always had a dream of opening a school with a leadership curriculum for our inner city youth. Through the grace of God and the support of the Harlem community my dream came true. I'm going from me to we!! I would like to thank Harlem, all my children in the school and the staff for making it happen!! #letsGO #CapitalPrepHarlem
My mother taught me the importance of education at an early age. I was able to gain tools, secrets and knowledge about what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win and what it takes to make your dreams come true!! That's what we're doing with #CapitalPrepHarlem!! We're empowering our inner city youth with the knowledge they need to be great!!
