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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Students must be 15 years of age to enroll in Driver Education. Students must have completed the Driver Education authorization form and have obtained an SGI customer number prior to the start of their session in order to be eligible to take the class.
Sessions typically run Monday to Friday, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Classroom 111. Please note all sessions are 30 hours in length as mandated by SGI and students must complete 6 hours of driving time. There is no cost.
Sessions fill up very quickly on a first come, first serve basis. There is a limit of 30 participants per session. Students who sign up for a session but do not attend, nor notify the office of their withdrawal, may be subject to a $500 fee posted to the student’s account and may be ineligible to register in subsequent driver education sessions.
Luther College reserves the right to cancel or alter dates for Driver Education sessions in order to ensure there are enough students in each session.
