Host Family Program

Did You Know?

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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 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.

  • 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.

  • The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

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.
