LeBron James’ “I Promise School” will open for third and fourth-graders in 2018, with plans to add first and second-grades by 2019 and expand through eighth-grade by the year 2022.
James issued this statement about the “I Promise School,”
“This school is so important to me because our vision is to create a place for the kids in Akron who need it most—those that could fall through the cracks if we don’t do something. We’ve learned over the years what works and what motivates them, and now we can bring all of that together in one place along with the right resources and experts. If we get to them early enough, we can hopefully keep them on the right track to a bigger and brighter future for themselves and their families.”
James made the announcement yesterday on behalf of the LeBron James Foundation. Check it out below.
