  • 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.

Does Luther College have a dress code?

Yes. The Luther College dress code is a reminder that this is a special school in which special kinds of behaviour are required. The way that staff and students dress has an impact on the tone of the school; therefore all are expected to dress appropriately for their particular roles and in a way that shows respect for themselves, others and Luther College. The dress code not only helps us identify guests and other outsiders, but also demonstrates to them that we observe time honoured standards and expectations, and take education seriously. These standards of dress and appearance mark our school as a unique place of dignity and minimize distractions to learning. This does not mean that clothes must be “dressy” or unduly formal. Casual clothing in which students feel comfortable for various learning activities such as outdoor science projects or art assignments may be worn if appropriate. Teachers and administration reserve the right to determine what is appropriate.

 

Do you have to be Christian to attend LCHS?

Students admitted to LCHS are not required to be Lutheran or members of the Christian faith. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

 

What is Chapel?

Daily Chapel, which all Luther College students must attend, is a unique and strong tradition at Luther College. Chapel is a time when the whole school gathers together to worship, laugh, and learn. It forms the foundation upon which Luther College’s strong community of support and respect is built. Chapel contact varies from day to day and can include devotions led by students, faculty or clergy; motivational guest speakers; fun, community building activities, and music.
