It's an exciting time of year for our graduates.

This year, our graduates are going to be pursuing a number of excellent programs at universities across the country -- from BC to Nova Scotia, and everywhere in between. Some of our students will take a year off to work or travel before pursuing post-secondary studies, while most are diving right in. Either way, the education they've received at Luther will be an important foundation as they venture out. We wish them all the best!
