Did You Know?
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Because tuition alone does not cover the costs of Luther’s operations, Luther must fundraise in order to provide the necessary financial assistance for worthy students, to upgrade our facilities and to offset the cost of high-quality programs.
Your gift can help to support the following priority initiatives:
- Student Financial Assistance: Luther provides many families with financial assistance, ensuring Luther fosters a diverse student body and provides opportunities for deserving students. Your gift can help make a Luther education more accessible for qualified students who could not otherwise afford to attend Luther College.
- Professional Development: Professional development for faculty and staff creates a stimulating teaching and learning environment; students benefit directly from the new learning that faculty members bring to the classroom. Professional development opportunities and continuing education are essential as we strive to towards our vision of providing the highest quality teaching and research within the liberal arts and sciences.
- Enhanced Facilities: Luther is committed to providing new and upgraded facilities that support our academic and extracurricular programs and that will enable us to continue to provide unforgettable memories and unparalleled learning experiences for future generations of students.
- Scholarships & Awards: Scholarship support helps to ensures that that deserving and outstanding young people are able to participate in Luther’s unique educational experience. Some donors choose to make a gift to enhance one of our many existing scholarships. Other donors also wish to establish their own scholarship. A minimum of $10,000 is required to endow a new scholarship.
- Programs: Donations also help enhance programming across the campus – athletics, music, drama, film and other co-curricular activities. Classroom furniture, athletic equipment, drama costumes, sound equipment, team uniforms, special guest speakers, and computer equipment are among the many valuable things made possible by a gift to Luther.
