Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations.
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.
In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.
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 choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.
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.
Income Tax Information
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.
