Diddy announced Monday that the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School will open in the fall. The school will be overseen by Capital Prep leader Steve Perry, who founded Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2005.
Diddy and the board have hired Orlando, Florida-based educator Danita Jones as the principal of Capital Prep Harlem.
He says creating the school is “a dream come true.”
If you didn’t know, Diddy was born in Harlem and grew up in Mount Vernon, New York. He attended Howard University, where he dropped out after two years but earned an honorary degree in 2014.
