With 1,100 kids in the program and tuition costing about $9,500 a year at the four-year school, the total amount LeBron pledged to donate is somewhere in the neighborhood of $42 million.
Specifically, the service will be offered to parents of children enrolled in the LeBron James Family Foundation.
The communications manager for Project Learn, Alexia Harris, said,
It takes a lot of courage to start classes to earn GED once you've been out of school for years, even decades.
In a press release, Michele Campbell, the executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation, added,
This is an opportunity to help our parents make strides in their own academic careers so they are better equipped to help our students keep their educational promises.
You may not be a fan of LeBron James on the court, but you have to cheer for his efforts in the classroom.
