Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Sarah Ketchum


My name is Sarah Ketchum, and I am excited to be part of the NorthStar Academy team. I am passionate about my faith and my family. I’m a pretty big “history nerd,” so I love teaching social studies courses!

I enjoy spending sunny days in the great outdoors and rainy days inside with a good book. I currently live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my husband, Andrew, and our two children, Heath and Adelaide.
