What is Luther College?

  • Luther College High School is a historical independent high school offering grades 9-12, located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.  
  • Luther College was established in 1913 and consists of a high school campus and a post-secondary campus, federated with the University of Regina.
  • Students pay tuition to attend, and the provincial government also partially funds Luther College. Luther is not a “private school” in that a true private school receives no government funding.
  • Luther offers the Saskatchewan government regulated curriculum, the university recognized International Baccalaureate program and diverse liberal arts programming.
  • Our motto "Quality education in a Christian context" refers to our emphasis on education of the whole person - intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically - within a progressive Christian context where principles of love, community, grace, and forgiveness are paramount.
  • Luther College also relies on the generosity and philanthropy of alumni and donors to support our programs, facilities, scholarships and financial assistance opportunities.
  • The High School campus completed a $18.3 million dollar expansion in 2014 which includes a new performance stage, three new classrooms (two of which are dedicated to fine arts), a new gymnasium and student fitness training centre, our first student commons area, and upgrades to existing structures. The school also has fully renovated science laboratories and extensively upgraded on-campus dormitories.
