Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Joey Beeson


I have served at NorthStar Academy in a variety of roles since 2008, and I currently have the privilege of just being a high school teacher and course author.

I am a history enthusiast, and I also serve as a full-time professor in the doctoral program in the College of Education at Charleston Southern University in South Carolina. I am also a husband to a NorthStar teacher (go Mrs. Beeson!) and a dad of five wonderful and full-of-energy children.


Over twenty years of teaching, curriculum development, and administrative experience in PK-12 and higher education, both stateside and overseas.

Previously served for seven years with NICS at Bandung Alliance Intercultural School, Indonesia.

In addition to ministering at NSA (since 2008), currently serve as a Professor at Charleston Southern University in South Carolina.
