Kanye West announces Yeezy Christian Academy and shares promotional video featuring North


Kanye West has unveiled a new promotional video for his Yeezy Christian Academy.   

The 43-year-old rapper launched the school last week after announcing in September that its five ‘founding pillars’ were ‘faith, music, communication, collaboration, and creativity.’ The post discusses what is expected of faculty and students at the school. 

West has also shared clips from what appears to be inside the academy, telling fans he was ‘food tasting the new menu there’. The blue walls of the school look to be covered in graffiti. 

Details about how the academy will run are vague, however, and there is no information about whether it is a fully certified institution. 

It is also not clear if the school will be open to the public or where it is based; any costs have also not been disclosed.  

A press release for the academy simply calls it Kanye’s ‘latest initiative for education,’ Page Six reports.
