Prospective Non-Saskatchewan Students
Did You Know?
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.
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 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 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.
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.
The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
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.
Many students from around the world call Luther College High School home.All Non-Saskatchewan students are required to live in our on-campus dormitory and are not permitted to live with family or friends off the campus.
At the heart of Luther College High School’s tradition is a belief in community and diversity. Luther students, from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of a tightly woven community of students, parents, teachers, and staff.
Typically, 12% of the school’s student body originates outside of Canada. Indeed, community and diversity are key components to Luther’s identity.
Luther College has over 70 international students as part of the school community, providing all students with the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and cultural awareness.
