|Who is Teaching My Child?
|The Founder and Director of The Village Christian Academy is Helen Carr. Mrs. Carr attended Wayne County Schools in Mt. Olive,
NC. In high school, while taking a Child Care Services Class, Mrs. Carr was bitten by the bug of teaching. She had the amazing
experience of teaching a struggling 4th grader how to read! Upon receiving a teaching scholarship, Mrs. Carr attended UNC
Charlotte where she received a BS in Special Education. After teaching six years in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, Mrs. Carr
began her family. Homeschooling was the answer that matched her teaching philosophy: “Every child can learn. We just
need to know how to teach them.” For the past 13 years Mrs. Carr has been teaching her children and helping other families
through homeschooling, tutoring, and now The Village Christian Academy.
