Principal Leadership

Michelle Pait
Secondary Principal

Welcome to Village Christian Academy!  We are delighted that you are interested in our school. I am the VCA Secondary School Principal and I am privileged to serve as the leader of grades 6-12. I am a 1994 North Carolina Teaching Fellows graduate from North Carolina State University with a graduate degree in School Administration and Curriculum and Instruction from East Carolina University. I am blessed with over 25 years of experience in education, a majority of which has been invested in Kingdom Education. 


At VCA you will find a balance of academic rigor, athletics, and fine arts opportunities grounded in a Christ-centered, Kingdom Education environment. We believe that all students are wonderful creations of God, endowed with the exact characteristics necessary for them to fulfill His intended purpose. Our goal is to prepare our students for the future through a diverse offering of programs recognizing their God-given uniqueness.  We love students wholly and challenge them by maintaining a standard of high expectations. We consider parents to be the most important steward in the lives of our students and we strive to partner with them to help prepare children for life now, in the near furniture, and for eternity!


As Secondary School Principal, I consider each student to be a precious gift from God, I love each one and I strive to know them personally. I promise to cover your child in prayer and to always seek guidance from the Holy Spirit in every decision whether it be for an individual student, the current and future academic, athletic and extracurricular programs, or any other facet involved in the successful education of your child at VCA.


Thank you for your interest in partnering with us to serve your family through Christ-centered education!

Building relationships with students and inspiring them to find God’s best for their lives has been a daily commitment since I entered into education 38 years ago. My biggest joy stems from observing students and teachers as they work together to cultivate learning.


Elementary school students amaze me each day with their wit, their love of learning, the way they build relationships, and, for many, their love of the Lord. Our goal is to build each student’s relationship with God and to seek His wisdom and guidance in everything we do.


The transition into the middle school years is an exciting and formative season. VCA will partner with our parents to guide their child to pursue excellence spiritually, academically, and socially so that students are able to establish a foundation that will serve them throughout their lives.


Village is a place where students feel at home, feel loved and nurtured, and will find the skills and knowledge they need to fulfill their dreams and the plans that our Lord has for their lives.
