Canadian & International Students General Admission application process:

Luther College High School has an online general admissions application process for all applicants. We no longer have a paper form available and all applicants are required to complete the online application process. Please review the steps below before proceeding with your application.

Luther is still accepting admission applications for September 2024-2025. However, international students who are not already holding a valid study permit should apply for our second semester (end of January 2025).
