Our History


In 1967, Mrs. Audrey Lawson, wife of Pastor Emeritus William A. Lawson, founded the Wheeler Avenue Infant School. In 2005, our senior pastor, Rev. Dr. Marcus D. Cosby, had a vision for a Christian School that included kindergarten through grade 12. 


In order to make this change, the infant and elementary schools merged to form Wheeler Avenue Christian Academy (WACA). Dr. Doris Bilton came out of retirement and stayed for two years to assist in establishing the school. Dr. Jacqueline Cobbin continued the task of building the foundation of WACA. Under her leadership, WACA earned its accreditation status.


After Dr. Cobbin’s departure, Mrs. Billie Joe Johnson, another educator, led WACA in its forward movement. The current executive director is Ada D. Carr.


It is our belief that Christian education is vital in developing children who will become productive citizens and strong leaders. Wheeler Avenue Christian Academy is committed to providing high-quality and high academic standards for its students.

Our Goals

At Wheeler Avenue Christian Academy in Houston, TX, our main goal is for children to acquire academic skills in the core subjects through and develop a love for God through our Christian-based program. The A Beka Curriculum constitutes the primary instructional material for our academic program, and provides the necessary skills all students need to be successful in life. In addition to this curriculum, additional teaching materials will be used in order to address all learning styles. 


Our teachers provide a learner-centered, well-organized classroom environment in our private Christian school. In our classrooms, work ethic and proper conduct are the acceptable standard, which allows students to concentrate on their work and develop strong character traits. We offer enrichment programs, including Chapel, Fine Arts, computer classes and Spanish. We also encourage participation in church and community projects.
