In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.
Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium - the largest high school gym in Regina.
Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.
The International Baccalaureate provides an enriched curriculum that both covers and extends beyond regular Saskatchewan curricula in its depth and detail. It emphasizes the development of the necessary critical skills that university-bound students need to master: reflecting, inquiring, thinking, analyzing and evaluating.
Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

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.

P.S. Luther College participates in a network of Lutheran Colleges and Universities called the Network of ELCA Colleges and Universities (NECU). This network recently produced a document called “Rooted and Open” which I think describes well the values we associate with the type of education we offer at Luther College.
