Curriculum, Exams and Graduation

Curriculum Requirements

Luther College High School follows the curriculum established by the Government of Saskatchewan. All of Luther College’s courses are in the academic stream, leading to a strong preparation for university studies. In addition to the required courses, Luther College High School students must take a course in Christian Ethics for each year of his or her enrollment.

Luther College works within the semester system. Students are allowed to take a maximum of six courses per semester. At every grade level, there are certain courses students must pass in order to graduate. These courses are known as compulsory courses. Other courses, however, are optional. Students may choose which ones they wish to take in order to fulfill the requirements for their Grade 12 diploma. Each spring, students select their courses for the upcoming school year by completing the appropriate form. A deposit must accompany the course selection form. Classes fill up very quickly on a first come first serve basis. Students submitting late requests risk not being admitted or waitlisted for classes.

In order to be eligible for a Luther College High School diploma, students must receive prior permission from administration to take any credit classes outside Luther College High School. These grades will not be used in any average calculations, which may mean the student will be excluded from scholarship and honour pin consideration.
