Did You Know?
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.
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 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.
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.
Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.
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.
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.
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 follows the curriculum established by the Government of Saskatchewan. All of Luther College’s courses are in the academic stream, leading to a strong preparation for university studies. In addition to the required courses, Luther College High School students must take a course in Christian Ethics for each year of his or her enrollment. Luther College High School also offers the IB program.
Graduates of Luther College are accepted at universities across North America. International students who complete Grades 10, 11, and 12 at Luther College High School are not required to write an English entrance examination to enter university.
Luther College works within the semester system. Students are allowed to take a maximum of six courses per semester. At every grade level, there are certain courses students must pass in order to graduate. These courses are known as compulsory courses. Other courses, however, are optional. Students may choose which ones they wish to take in order to fulfill the requirements for their Grade 12 diploma.
In order to be eligible for a Luther College High School diploma, students must receive prior permission from administration to take any credit classes outside Luther College HIgh School. These grades will not be used in any average calculations, which may mean the student will be excluded from scholarship and honour pin consideration.
