Did You Know?
Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) information slips required for income tax purposes for certain scholarship awards or fees paid. The following is a summary of the information slips to be made available:
Tuition Fees - a Charitable Donation receipt will be issued to parents or guardians for a percentage of the school tuition fees paid.
Dorm Fees - dorm room and board fees for students aged 16 or less may qualify as child care expenses. The College will issue a letter to the student's parents or guardians detailing the room and board portions of the fees paid.
International Baccalaureate - A T2202A Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate will be issued to students taking Grade 12 International Baccalaureate classes for fees paid. These are recognized as Post- Secondary courses and are eligible for a tuition tax credit in the same way that university course tuition is eligible.
Scholarships - students who received a scholarship or some other form of financial assistance of $500 or more from the College will be issued a T4A Supplementary Income Statement.
