Sean Diddy Combs and Dr. Steve Perry have joined forces to launch a charter school in East Harlem this coming fall.  In a press release, Combs called the project a “dream come true,” adding, “I want to impact the lives of young people in my community, and build future leaders. The first step is offering access to a quality education.”

The new school will be named Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School, according to the Associated Press. The venture has been in the works for five years.

Dr. Steve Perry, founder of Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut, will oversee the school. Danita Jones, Orlando, an Florida-based educator, will be the school’s principal. Combs described the amazing opportunity as “a dream come true.” In addition, Combs and Perry have been meeting in secret with community leaders and experts in education to build the program.

The school’s board also includes author and spiritual life coach Dr. Iyanla Vanzant, who has worked withOprah Winfrey in the past.

According to Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School’s official website, the school is a free, public school for children grades 6-12. The extensive program will provide a “year-round, college preparatory education.” College courses will also be available to the students once they reach high school.
