Rapper Kanye West, who conceded his 2020 presidential run on election day, officially launched his new school, Yeezy Christian Academy.
It is not known if the academy will function as an official school with a certified educational program.
In a Twitter post released with a video and was captioned “dear future, I still believe in you,” a phrase repeated throughout the video. The video features West’s kids, North (7) and Saint (4), as well as his nephew Mason (10) and niece Penelope (8) wearing blue Yeezy Christian Academy T-shirts.
The video also features various other children who say they believe in their families, the future. “Our future has homes for everyone,” one kid said. Following this, multiple children stated, “Jesus loves everyone.” Towards the end of the video, the kids all say in unison “Let’s lead with love!”
West first announced the launch of his school in September, sharing that the five “founding pillars” of the academy are “faith, music, communication, collaboration, and creativity.”
The “Jesus Is King” rapper emphasized that “everything in the school exudes Christianity, all faculty share the faith.”
He also noted, Students will learn how to create and sing, learn how to communicate in the 21st century and how to collaborate with one another on projects.
There are no details about how much tuition will be for the academy or who is able to attend. Information on whether or not YCA has been credited as a fully certified institution is also not available.
