Principal Aaron Landgrave


Bachelor of Arts from Concordia University – Chicago

Experience: This is my 33rd year of teaching/coaching. I have taught in Lutheran Schools in Connecticut, North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Illinois. I served one year as Head Women’s Basketball Coach and Assistant Athletics Director at Castleton State College, in Castleton, VT.  I have been Principal since 1999 at St. Paul, Oak Lawn, Immanuel, Palatine, Trinity, Burr Ridge, and now at St. John’s in Lombard.


Favorite Bible verse: Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”


Personal story: I am madly in love with my wife of 29 years, Adrienne. We have a 7 year-old German Shepherd named Punkin. We love to bike, hike, kayak (preferably in Maine and Alaska), and we love to travel.
