Host Family Program

Did You Know?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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 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.

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 of the 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.
