let the greatness begin

The Dapper Elite Academy was founded May, 2016 by Nicci Canada; International Recording Artist and CEO of Dapper Street Productions. With a passion and love for economic empowerment and freedom, Nicci founded the Dapper Elite Academy to help revitalize elements of Black Wall Street. The Dapper Elite Academy’s primary focus is grooming strong economic leaders within the black communities.
The four preparatory classes of focus are Finance - Entrepreneurship, Dapper Greatness, Etiquette, & Black Innovative Studies. Success is a recipe and we strongly believe that offering one class alone will not produce the “Greatness Cake”. A chocolate cake cannot be created with flour alone. There are different ingredients to create a delicious cake and we view it the same way when it comes to economic success. This is why we provide experienced and qualified staff members to present to each student the tools necessary for their future success.
These four classes will assist in shaping and molding each student in their strengths, gifts and talents as emerging economic leaders. Dapper Elite believes in consistency. The 4 tier curriculum is part of our continuing education in preparing our youth for productive and prosperous futures, for themselves and their communities. The Dapper Elite Academy is not an option, it’s mandatory.
"Build the minds and the minds will build the cities."
