Welcome to Urban Success University's redesigned Leadership Academy



The redesigned Leadership Academy at Urban Success University, is where we are dedicated to guiding today's youth on their journey to becoming the accomplished achievers and leaders of tomorrow. Our academy has undergone significant evolution over the past 13 school years, while remaining rooted in the timeless wisdom of John Maxwell's leadership principles.

In 2010, our original founding chairman, Rev. Dr. Congressman William Gray III, provided our then Dean and current chairman, KJ, with a remarkable opportunity. KJ was personally accredited by John Maxwell himself through his prestigious Leadership Gold program, which included receiving the renowned John Maxwell Bible known for its teachings.


Building on this foundation, KJ distilled the top 25 Lessons he learned from John Maxwell and integrated them into our curriculum.


Additionally, we draw from Maxwell's acclaimed books, "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You" and "The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader: Becoming the Person Others Will Want to Follow."


At the Leadership Academy, we believe that leadership is not a one-size-fits-all concept.


Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to be flexible and adaptable, catering to the unique needs and aspirations of each student. Whether you aspire to be an entrepreneur, a community leader, or a seasoned executive, our program will empower you to unlock your full potential and achieve both personal and professional success.

Our distinguished faculty members are accomplished leaders in their respective fields, possessing a profound understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by today's leaders.


They are passionate about mentoring and supporting the next generation, and their expertise will guide you towards your goals.


More than just a program, the Leadership Academy fosters a vibrant community of like-minded individuals who share a common vision of making a positive impact in the world.


We invite you to join us and become part of this dynamic and inspiring network of leaders.
