Diddy Pledges $1 Million For New Charter School in The Bronx

Just months after LeBron James opened a brand new school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, Sean “Diddy” Combs is looking to follow suit by sprinkling a little black excellence in the northernmost borough of New York City, The Bronx.

The New York native has pledged $1 million to Capital Preparatory Schools, a network of charter schools, for a new location in the Bronx.

According to USA Today, the school is set to open in September with 160 6th and 7th graders, and a goal to expand to 650 students from sixth to eleventh grade over the years. 

Although Diddy is from Harlem, the network of charter schools already services his hometown, with other schools in Bridgeport, Connecticut. But now, with the music mogul’s contribution, the schools will be able to expand to the Bronx to “provide historically disadvantaged students with the college and career skills they need to succeed.”
