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 first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
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.
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 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.
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.
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 Luther Invitational Tournament was inducted into the Regina Sports Hall of Fame - Class of 2016.
LIT is a Patron: Basketball.
"Founded in 1953, LIT is a senior high school basketball tournament that promotes sportsmanship, hospitality and high-level competition. Traditionally held during three days in February, the annual event is organized by Luther's student body, with 10 committees comprising of 10-20 volunteers to handle media, decorations, hosting duties, scorekeeping, concessions and clean up. LIT promotes the values of volunteering and leadership. School alumni return regularly to attend the games. Other schools have emulated the tournament in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Raymond, all of which have won the event during its history."
Luther College thanks those who made this honor possible. We also want to thank the larger community of students, faculty, parents and fans who have played a part in LIT's success over the past 64 years.
Gillian Leach (HS'16) and Brock Lumbard (HS'16) were representing LIT at the announcement.
The Regina Sports Hall of Fame is a non-profit association formed to honour the people and teams who have contributed to sports in Regina. The display site is in the Co-operators Centre inside Evraz Place.
