Host Family Program

Did You Know?

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 College High School Host Family Program

What it is not:  Having students live with you.

Who: We need families like yours to connect with our international students at Luther College High School.  

What: We invite you to consider being a Host Family to a Luther student who is from another country.

Where: You can host in your home, or in and around Regina. For example, you could invite your student to your home for a meal or movie night, go for a walk around Wascana Lake, or do a fun activity together, such a bowling.

When: You can be a Host Family for one or both semesters in the 2017/2018 school year.

How often:  It would be great if you could get together with your student at least once during a semester.

Why:  To give students who live in the dorm a chance to meet a family, experience Canadian culture, and improve their English language skills.
