Music & business mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, and his partner, education mogul Dr. Steve Perry, have announced the opening of their third charter school Capital Prep Bronx

The school, located in Co-Op City, will kick off its inaugural semester on Sept. 8 with a fully remote schedule. Nearly 200 6th and 7th graders will initially comprise the student body, with plans to expand to 650 students from grades 6 to 11.

“We couldn’t be more excited to open our next school together in Co-Op city, a community rooted in social justice and diversity,” Perry said in the press release. “While opening up remote at first is bittersweet, we have developed a best in class approach to online learning we are excited to implement with our new families. The Capital Prep college prep model is perfectly poised to transition into the digital space and we are excited to deliver a rigorous education to this inaugural class of scholars.”

Capital Prep Bronx marks the third school within the Capital Preparatory Schools network, following Capital Prep Harbor in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Capital Prep Harlem. Diddy and Perry intend to expand the network in the upcoming years.

Schools like Capital Prep Bronx are needed as barriers surrounding equitable education persist within New York City. According to Chalkbeat New York, NYC-based schools with more economically disadvantaged students are underfunded.
