A Note from Mr. Spitzer

My name is Logan Spitzer. I have been at Saint John’s Prep since August, working on my school counseling internship, and I am excited for this new role! I also coached JV girls’ soccer and am currently helping coach Knowledge Bowl. I am originally from Winona, Minnesota where I attended Cotter High School, a small school much like Saint John’s Prep. After graduating from high school, I attended Saint John’s University where I majored in psychology. I played played rugby, competing at regional and national levels.

During my time at SJU, I also studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria for a semester and worked for the SJU Health Initiative. I am now in Saint Cloud State University‘s school counseling program, and will be graduating in May with a master’s degree in counseling psychology. Some of my other interests and hobbies include running, yoga, and taking care of my houseplants. I also enjoy the outdoors and am excited to spend some free time walking and hammocking in the Saint John’s Arboretum! I look forward to further engaging with the SJP community in this new capacity!

A Note from Mr. Killen

My name is Al Killen, I am so excited to join the Saint John’s Preparatory School community as a Residential Director to make a difference in the lives of the students by fostering a positive academic and residential environment. I am a recent graduate from Berea College in Kentucky Class of 2021 as a Bachelor’s of Art in Sociology major. I also hold an Associates’ degree from Highland Community College in Kansas that I obtained in 2018. I am passionate about working with the youth and empowering them through education and extra-curricular activities. I plan to be fully invested in the academic and social success of the students at Saint John’s Preparatory School. I come from a summer camp and service background working with kids of different age groups in a residential setting.

My favorite hobbies are exercising, playing sports, watching sports, traveling, exploring, hiking, trying new foods, sightseeing, and socializing with new people. I grew up in Silver Springs, Maryland, and am a descendent of Liberian West African parents. I was born in Accra, Ghana, and came to the United States at the age of 1 year old. I want to continue to push the Saint John’s Prep values of Diversity and Inclusion!

I want to thank Saint John’s Prep for giving me the opportunity to join a prestigious secondary institution and be part of a great residential community!
