Katie Bergstrom ’83 is the principal for the 2018-19 school year.
Upon graduation from Prep in 1983, Katie earned her BA from The University of Notre Dame before earning her JD from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1991. Katie spent 26 years as a trial lawyer in private practice and recently resigned that position to explore other opportunities.
Katie wishes to share, “As I have often said, Saint John’s Prep helped launch me into the world. I hold this school and this Benedictine community close to my heart. What a joy for me to return and serve in the capacity of interim principal. I look forward to sharing my passion for education and the Prep School with students, families, and faculty.”
Katie served as Chair of our Saint John’s Prep Board of Regents for several years before stepping down to serve as interim principal. To help Headmaster Fr. Jonathan Licari, OSB and the Board of Regents achieve the goals set by the strategic plan, the Board of Regents is convening a task force to study the structures and systems of other private schools in an effort to develop systems and structures appropriate for our own future. Katie Bergstrom will serve the school as this work is conducted.
