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.
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.
The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.
The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
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.
The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.
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.

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.
