Welcome to Washington Academy

Meet Sheila Qualls, Director
Sheila Qualls is the executive director of Washington Academy. She holds a BA in English and Journalism and an MA in Communication.
Sheila is a wife of a U.S. Army veteran and mother to a U.S. Army son.  She home schooled their five children from kindergarten through 12th grade. She has served as a university professor and has run and taught at several homeschool co-ops. 
Prior to coming to Washington Academy, Sheila was an award-winning journalist and editor. She most recently reported on education for Alpha News where she produced a nationally ranked five-part podcast series on the declining academic standards in Minnesota. Producing the series heightened her desire to give all students a knowledge-rich, moral based education where they not only learn the academic fundamentals for success but they also learn their identity in Christ.
She was a Christian marriage and family columnist at Patheos.com where she wrote about issues challenging modern-day wives and families.
