Did You Know?
Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
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.
