Alex Dean Leventis

Nickname: 'Alex'

CEO at Optimum Learning Academy


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Cape Town South Africa

I am a young, self-motivated individual who thrives on success. I truly believe that every task approached should be done with integrity and urgency.

I have recently taken the route on the path of the ultimate adventure - Becoming an entrepreneur.

After two years of working in the corporate world, I made the decision that I want to do more for society. The world currently faces the largest economic downfall that needs the most urgent attention - The lack of entrepreneurship. With a world-wide increase in entrepreneurship, we will see an astonishing increase in the state of all the economies across the globe as this will better the global issues of employment, poverty, crime etc.

I have started my journey by starting a company called Optimum Learning Academy.

Society needs urgent intervention and I am taking that single leap of future development in myself in order to allow me to make the impact that our country and the world at large so desperately needs, starting by addressing our urgent need for both quality education, as well as entrepreneurship.

Current Position(s)

Co - Founder & Chief Executive Officer | Optimum Learning Academy
2013 - present

Academia, Education and Training

Optimum Learning Academy is a private preparatory school franchise doing more than just preparing your children for their upcoming school careers; we prepare them for life and ensure that upon graduation they are prepared to succeed!

Most preschools merely offer school readiness programs that will ensure that your children have a strong enough foundation to get through school and get a job 12 years later.

Optimum Learning Academy takes this concept and revolutionizes it, taking it a step further and allowing us to Sculpt The Future!

The next generations' world leaders are currently standing right in front of us, all we need to do is unlock that potential and let them know it too.

At Optimum Learning Academy, we do just that!

We have developed an Early Childhood Development (ECD) program that does more than just prepare your children for school as it approaches; we set them on the road to success.

We understand that at this age, the mind is at its most fertile stage and every principle instilled therein, remains there and develops these children into who they become as they grow.

Therefore, we have incorporated all the principles which are essential to success into our ECD learning programs, thereby locking these principles into the subconscious of all our students at an age where they are still unaware of the true definition of success itself.

These principles will then go on to determine every decision made by our students throughout their walk of life and essentially determine who they become in the future.

The principles taught in their most basic forms were all learnt by the world's most successful people after many, many years of trial and error, followed by hundreds of failures and temporary defeat.

By teaching these principles at this early age, we are eliminating the need for that entire process and ensuring that success is nothing more than a finger-tip away.

At Optimum Learning Academy, we do more than the ordinary – WE’RE SCULPTING THE FUTURE!
