About Jay Morrison Academy
Jay Morrison Academy was founded to give people from underserved communities the financial education they’ve historically missed out on. By teaching the power of wealth building, homeownership, and financial literacy, our goal is to empower people from all backgrounds to create generational wealth and enjoy the freedom that comes with it.
Another Way Out
Jay Morrison Academy was founded by Jay “Mr. Real Estate” Morrison, who, before he was a successful real estate investor, educator, and speaker, was a three-time felon and high school dropout. Now Jay uses his life experiences and personal story of triumph over incredible odds to inspire other people – from at-risk youth to ex-offenders to real estate professionals – to achieve their own personal American Dream.

Our mission isn’t to give you a useless piece of paper saying you took some classes. What we do is reprogram your brain to think about money – making it, spending it, and investing it – in a way that makes YOU successful, not the banks.
Your Empowerment Team
Our group of seasoned financial educators and coaches had been hand-selected to bring a varied group of expertise to the table at Jay Morrison Academy. Smart, strong, and driven to see you succeed, these folks are your support team on your journey to financial freedom.
