Head of School Biography

Kathleen Fenger, Ph.D.

Head of School

Once a troubled Logos student herself, Kathy Fenger is now the school’s top administrator. She is a daily reminder for Logos students and families that there is no limit to what they can achieve.

Kathy’s family life was unstable and she had to take on responsibilities at a very early age, which brought her to Logos. She had to fight off depression that could have overwhelmed her. When she was in eighth grade her mother was diagnosed with a mental illness, which precipitated Kathy moving in with her best-friend’s parents and later being adopted by them. The family enrolled her into Logos and despite her life’s burdens, Kathy swiftly emerged as a model student and graduated from Logos in 1979.

Kathy continued her education at Webster University, earning a B.A. in Psychology, an M.A. in Counseling, and a lifetime teaching certificate in Special Education. Her skills are constantly honed as she brings order to chaos for more than 100 middle and high school students with learning, emotional, and/or behavioral challenges.

Kathy has directed both facets of Logos, the Midwest’s leading academic and therapeutic program of its kind. She has held many positions at Logos;  Adolescent Therapist, Special Education Coordinator, English Department Head, Executive Vice President, and is now the Head of School.

Kathy has also contributed her expertise outside of Logos, making numerous presentations for the Learning Disability Association-St. Louis Affiliate.  These presentations have included topics such as individualized instruction, parenting teens, positive behavior management, and social skills training for LD and ADD students.

In the summer of 2012, Kathy obtained her Ph.D. in Education Leadership and Administration from the University of Missouri, St. Louis.

In more ways than one, Logos has shaped a large part of Kathy’s life. Logos gave her what she needed to succeed and she continues to give hope to students and families in need.
