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 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.
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 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.

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 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.
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.
Strategic Plan 2016 - 2019
The mission of Luther College High School is to instill in students a love of learning and belief in the value of knowledge, the worth of the individual, the importance of community, and an awareness of God’s world. We provide an intellectual, challenging and supportive environment where students gain a solid foundation for further education, life-long learning, and service to the community and world. Through the development of the whole person— social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual— students are well prepared to become leaders as caring, ethical, critically engaged citizens. Students leave Luther College well prepared for post-secondary education.
Our Strategic Plan helps us achieve this mission. The Plan for 2016-2019 focuses on these goals:
1. Academically Challenging
2. High Quality Student Support Services
3. Strengthened Capacity for Professional Development and Faculty & Staff Renewal
4. Enhanced Community Building, including Strengthening the Christian Context of the School
5. Renew and Enhance the Physical Plant
6. Achieve a Stable and Predictable Financial Capacity and Student Enrolment
