Exams & Graduation

Exam Periods

There are midterm and final exam periods in each semester. Specific room locations and times will be provided on the school website and posted in the hallways approximately one week in advance of the exam period. Failure to attend exams may result in a failing grade.


To receive a Luther College High School diploma students are required to earn 26 total credits by the end of grade 12. The provincial requirements for a high school diploma are 24 credits, with 5 being earned in grade 12. Students must receive permission from administration prior to taking 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 roll consideration.

Baccalaureate and Closing Exercises are held at the end of each school year to present high school diplomas to grade 12 graduates. The formal program also includes the presentation of grade 12 IB standing, grade 12 Honour roll and scholarships. A graduation reception for students, families and staff is held in the Student Commons after the ceremony. The Graduation Banquet is held the same night and includes speeches and entertainment by students, parents and faculty.
