Diddy Opens Charter School in Harlem

Five years in the making.

Sean Combs otherwise known to the world as Puff Daddy is heading a new venture: The hip-hop mogul is opening a charter school in Harlem, the same neighborhood that raised him. According to the Associated Press, Diddy’s new school, Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School, will open this fall. Dr. Steve Perry, the founder of Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut, will oversee the school while Florida-based educator Danita Jones will be its inaugural principal. This has apparently been in the works for five years, and Puff has described this opportunity as “a dream come true.” On the school’s official site, Capital Prep Harlem is a free, public school for grades 6-12, and will provide a “year-round, college preparatory education” and make college courses available to students once in high school. Congratulations to Puff Daddy and Harlem community.
