Mission & History

Our Mission & History

Our mission is to teach students to live a Christian lifelong commitment to God’s principles, love God, their families and community devoutly, and to learn all the necessary skills to be successful disciples and citizens in a global world.
Wheeler Avenue Christian Academy offers the best in Christian PreSchool & Private Elementary School education in Houston, TX. All of our programs are designed to provide differentiated and individualized instruction to each student with a focus on Christian and academic rigor. 

In 1967, Mrs. Audrey Lawson, wife of Pastor Emeritus William A. Lawson, founded the Wheeler Avenue Infant School. For many decades, the Infant School served newborns and toddlers from the Wheeler Avenue congregation and the surrounding Third Ward community. In 2005, our Senior Pastor Rev Dr. Marcus D. Cosby had a vision for a Christian Academy that would expand and serve students from Kindergarten through Grade 12. Through this vision, our students would receive academic, emotional and social support from cradle to college.
