Rap and fashion mogul Sean (Diddy) Combs plans to open a charter school in Harlem in the fall.
The “I’ll Be Missing You” rapper says the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School will be overseen by Capital Prep leader Steve Perry, who founded Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Conn. in 2005.
Diddy said creating the school is “a dream come true.”
Combs and the board have hired Orlando-based educator Danita Jones as the principal of Capital Prep Harlem.
Combs was born in Harlem and grew up in Mount Vernon, N.Y. He attended Howard University, where he dropped out after two years but earned an honorary degree in 2014.
