Diddy announced on Wednesday (Sept. 2) that he’s opening the newest addition to his network of college prep schools, with this one in the Bronx.

The school, Capital Prep Bronx, is scheduled to open Sept. 8 in the borough’s Co-Op City neighborhood with a fully remote schedule to accommodate safety precautions surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It will serve nearly 200 underserved students in the sixth and seventh grades in its first year, with plans to grow to up to 650 students in grades 6 through 11 over the next five years.

“My dream has always been to provide children in communities like the Bronx the high quality education they deserve,” said Diddy in a statement. “We’re not just teaching reading, math and coding. We are grooming future leaders that will change their communities and the world.”

The rapper and his partner in the project, Dr. Steve Perry, have previously opened two other prep schools under the Capital Preparatory Schools banner in Diddy’s native Harlem and Bridgeport, Conn.

“We couldn’t be more excited to open our next school together in Co-Op City, a community rooted in social justice and diversity.” Dr. Perry added in the statement. “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.”
