The new educational facility, which will be the third addition to the previous schools that Diddy and Perry have opened, is scheduled to open on September 8. Capital Prep Bronx, which is located in Co-Op City will allow nearly 200 underserved sixth and seventh graders to attend in its first year. The school has expansion plans that include growing 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,” Diddy said. “We’re not just teaching reading, math, and coding. We are grooming future leaders that will change their communities and the world.”
Capital Preparatory Schools already has two other campuses. One located in Harlem, NY, and an additional one in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
According to the Capital Prep website, “The mission of Capital Preparatory Schools is to provide historically disadvantaged students with the college and career readiness skills needed to become responsible and engaged citizens for social justice.”
“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. “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.”
The Bronx campus will be located at 755 Co-Op City Blvd., which was once the location of the College of New Rochelle.
