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.
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.
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.
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
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.
Living at Luther
Luther College High School dormitory students benefit from being part of a small, safe, close-knit residence community. This supportive community enables students to grow both personally and in relationship with others. The dormitory program stresses respect for oneself, others, one’s surroundings, and learning. Out of these emphases grows maturity, independence, responsibility, and self-discipline.
Most rooms are double occupancy and come furnished with beds, desks and built-in closets. Washrooms are newly renovated. Resident students have access to a student lounge and wireless internet. All meals and snacks are provided in the Luther College High School Cafeteria.
The dorm program offers a variety of social activities for students such as movie nights, karaoke nights, outdoor camping, an annual ski trip, open gym time, games night and more.
A dean of men, a dean of women and several residence assistants supervise the dorm student’s seven-days-a-week. A school nurse is also available to students.
The lounge is a great place to hang out and spend time with friends while living in the dorms. With a big-screen television for movies and Nintendo Wii, air hockey, table tennis, a pool table and foosball, there’s something for everyone!
The cafeteria is a central place in Luther College High School, providing places to meet and study as well as a place to eat. The cafeteria staff prepares three meals a day, brunches on Saturday and Sunday, and afternoon and evening snacks for all dorm students. Dorm students are required to have breakfast in the cafeteria. We hope that a complete breakfast will allow students to perform well in class and in their daily interactions.
The Blue Room
The Blue Room is a formal reception room. Located in the girl’s dorm building, the space is open to all dorm students. The Blue Room is used for teas and receptions, as well as a place for dorm students to practice their piano, quietly read and study, or simply to spend time together.
