Welcome to the Luther College High School website!
While Luther College High School has over one hundred years of tradition and success in high school education, what we continue to be most proud of is our caring community that ensures our students are successful academically, personally, and professionally.
Have you ever heard of another high school where 96% of their graduates regularly go on to some form of post-secondary education? Or of a school where the participation rate in school activities is almost always over 85%? What I am constantly amazed at is how successful our students are at their studies while having so much fun in every aspect of their school career.
Be a part of the history and tradition. Create your own success story at Luther College. I look forward to meeting you in the hallways or Student Commons area of Luther College High School.
