In an effort to accommodate more students, Diddy’s Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School has moved to a larger campus.

On Thursday (Nov. 11), REVOLT’s Chairman announced Capital Prep’s new Harlem location at the Church Of All Saints and School, where maximum capacity will be 700 students, a 25% increase from the previous cap. The new grounds will also feature 40 new classrooms and offices, science labs, a cafeteria, an outdoor courtyard, sports room and the “Great Hall,” an auditorium designated for assemblies and performances showcasing students’ various talents.

“The kids of Harlem should have access to opportunity and a quality education and deserve to learn on a campus that reflects the level of excellence we aspire for them to achieve,” said Diddy.

“This new campus for Capital Prep Harlem reflects my commitment to empowering as many children as I can and creating spaces for the next generation of leaders to thrive in every aspect of their lives.”

Diddy launched Capital Prep Harlem in 2016 with hopes to offer educational opportunities to underserved communities in his hometown neighborhood; another Capital Prep opened nearly four years later in the Bronx. Last year, a total of 65 seniors graduated from across both campuses and were accepted into more than 300 four-year colleges. Capital Prep Harlem’s 2022 graduating class is likely to have the most students considering the school’s move to a bigger and better campus.

We are honored to reinvigorate a landmarked gem of Harlem, revitalizing its original place as a center of education for the community through our new campus.” co-founder Dr. Steve Perry said in a statement. “A prestigious staple of New York City, we are proud to provide the children of Capital Prep Harlem with a learning environment and space that reflects the history and beauty of the community we know and love.”
