Meet Our School's Leaders


Melanie Singleton
Head of Schools

Raised in southern rural Texas, my grandmother picked cotton alongside her 13 brothers and sisters each morning before walking to the school house miles away for black children. The premium she placed on education was passed down to my generation and since the very beginning, I have been taught that education is the essential ingredient to success, enlightenment and freedom. A native Houstonian, I have attended various types of school from private to traditional ISD to public charter to home schooling. From my practice, research and studies, I have examined and successfully applied innovative techniques to designing and leading excellent schools in urban environments for students in EC-12. Your children are the future of Wheeler Avenue Christian Academy, our great city of Houston, and ultimately this nation. In a time where their education, presentation of self, and values greatly impacts their ability to be productive citizens, WACA is here to provide them with a Christian and academic foundation that will equip them for success in whatever paths they choose. We will ensure they live, love and learn all the necessary skills to be successful disciples and citizens in a global world. We are excited to take this developmental journey with your child and family!
