International Students

LCBI is an international school. We accept students from across the globe. Over the past decade, LCBI has attracted students from Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Denmark, Norway, Kazakhstan, Colombia, Dubai and Barbados. 

“International students bring a new dimension to our campus. Often we get into a routine of our little world around us, but international students bring a regular reminder that the world is very diverse.”
— Former LCBI Principal Guebert

Our Take: LCBI High School

our take

The academic program is strong, to be sure, though, in addition to that, the primary the draw for families that enroll is community. The curriculum is taught through a Christian lens, and the students arrived to a community of true peers, those that share academic goals and Christian values. The student population is relatively small, which also is an attraction. Instruction is collaborative, intentionally as well as being a function of class size. The extracurricular and athletic offerings are impressive, and certainly broader than you’d find in other schools of this size. A minority of students board, though the boarding program nevertheless provides a basis for the inclusive, community-oriented culture of the school. It also adds a nice international dimension to the life of the school. The ideal student is one seeking to live through the values of the school within a community that shares them.

    LCBI has a proud choral music tradition. As other schools cut back on their Fine Arts programs, LCBI has expanded and enhanced this important area. LCBI’s Concert Choir is at the centre of our Fine Arts program. Our award-winning Concert Choir is an auditioned choir. Students wait with anticipation each year to see if they have been selected to be part of this well-known and respected group.

    The Concert Choir rehearses every day — a rarity among schools that have a choir. The daily rehearsals result in remarkable growth and development in the choir. The choir directors have taken the choir in new and exciting directions over the years, ensuring that his students study a range of repertoire, from Renaissance music to spirituals.

    The Concert Choir tours Saskatchewan each spring, and performs concerts throughout the year in and around Outlook.

Principal's Message


Leanne Engen, Principal

Welcome to LCBI High School. We are excited to be joining the Our Kids organization, and hope you will find our high school, nestled on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, is a potential school option for your teen. We offer an excellent educational environment and a safe and caring boarding experience- but I believe that many schools offer just that. What sets us apart, I can say for certain, is our small ( 65 students) school community that becomes a new family for all our students. Thousands of alumni have maintained a special bond over our 103 year history, and our campus is a place where we strive to "see Jesus" in all we do, while at the same time sharing that love with other local and global communitites- we are mindful of the call to be "the hands and feet of Jesus" in all we do as well. 

LCBI High School is a school that values excellence in education, Christian Lutheran principles, and the nurturing of mind, body and spirit. We have been called the best kept secret and we want to share this secret with you- you will receive great value for your investment. We look forward to meeting the newest members of our extended family in the near future. 


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional

What LCBI High School says: LCBI offers the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education Curriculum this allows students to graduate and attend colleges and universities around the world. Students learn all core disciplines of study including English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, History and Christian Ethics. Inquiry experiential learning and collaboration are key focuses in the student learning environment.

  • Approach:
    Focus Religious-based
    Academic Christian (Lutheran)

    If you want to learn more about faith-based education, check out our comprehensive guide.
    If you want to learn more about Christian education, check out our comprehensive guide.

  • Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics Traditional Math

      Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.
      Learn about the different mathematics approaches  

    • What LCBI High School says: LCBI offers two streams of math education. Students choose between the two streams based on which fits the prerequisite requirements for their future education and career goals. Pre-calculus is a course that focusses the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary programs that require the study of theoretical calculus. Foundations of Math is a more inquiry based learning curriculum focussing on practical applications of mathematical procedures. This stream is designed for students who are planning on pursuing a post -secondary program and future career that is not math intensive.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: This information is not currently available.

    • Calculator policy: While Calculators are permitted, students, particularly in level 10 math, are encouraged to make use of the math foundations instead of a calculator. Students in 30 level math are encouraged to complete a problem using foundations and verify using the calculator.

    Science Equal Balance

      Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.
      Learn about the different science approaches  

    • Teaching approach: At LCBI we teach courses in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Health Science, and Physical Science. Our approach to teaching is a combined approach of expository science and inquiry based science. We use traditional methods of teaching science that incorporates learning scientific facts, theories, and relationships between them as well as a more modern approach where students are able to develop and execute their own experiments, practice "hands on" skills and learning through laboratory work and projects, and where students are challenged to be critical and scientific minded thinkers. We strive to have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct instruction and student-centred learning and projects.

    • Topics covered in curriculum:

      Subject = offered
    • Treatment of evolution:

      Evolution as consensus theory
      Evolution as one of many equally viable theories
      Evolution is not taught

    Literature Equal Balance

      These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.
      Learn about the different literature approaches  

    • What LCBI High School says: LCBI has a variety of opportunities to explore social justice issues within the context of the provincial curriculum. We take full advantage of that by exploring issues locally including First Nations and Metis education to the broader social justice issues in the world. English courses meet various desired learning outcomes using the study of various sources, print and non-print, ranging from Ancient literature to contemporary literature from Canada and around the world.

    Humanities and Social Sciences Equal Balance

      These programs represent an equal balance between the perennialist and pragmatic approach to teaching the humanities and social sciences.
      Learn about the different humanities and social sciences approaches  

    • What LCBI High School says: The school emphasizes both pragmatism and perennialism, in that, while we study "big ideas" we also try to make these ideas come to life by providing students with opportunities to apply these ideas through the completion of meaningful tasks. For example, students are required to write traditional essays and undertake oral presentations; however, students also get opportunities to role play in class, learn vicariously by participating in mock parliaments and debates, and complete practical projects like creating their own country replete with unique political, economic, social, cultural and religious systems. The humanities program at LCBI strives to push individual students to develop both their intellectual acumen and creativity.

    Foreign Languages Communicative

      The communicative method of language acquisition emphasizes the use of the target language in authentic contexts. The approach commonly features interactive group work, games, authentic texts, and opportunities to learn about the cultural background of the language. Drills and quizzes may still be used, but less frequently than with the audio-lingual method.
      Learn about the different foreign languages approaches  

    • What LCBI High School says: These courses aim to provide the student with basic, intermediate and advanced communication skills in French and Spanish, the ability to read and understand different types of texts, and the skills to write creatively- in both conversational and narrative compositions. The four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing are reinforced. Grammar is used in context before being made explicit in grammatical terminology. The course also aims to familiarize the student with aspects of French and Spanish cultures. Students are introduced to the language and the culture of the Spanish and French world through a variety of language learning techniques including: diverse real-life situations, everyday situations, conversations, role playing, traditional lessons on grammar, and written exercises. Emphasis is given to vocabulary building through reading and through using French and Spanish as creatively as possible.

    • Studying a foreign language is required until:   9
    • Languages Offered: • French • Spanish

    Fine Arts Creative

      Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.
      Learn about the different fine arts approaches  

    • Program offers:

      Subject = offered
      Graphic Design
      Visual Arts
    • Visual studio philosophy:

    • What LCBI High School says: The arts program at LCBI follows the curriculum for Saskatchewan. Students learn about the evolution and history of various types of art, e.g. sculpture, painting, etc. and use that history to inform original creations in any medium of their choosing. Students at the school also benefit from exposure to guest artists who work in the community. The choral program is the keystone of the LCBI fine arts program. The auditioned choir rehearses daily exploring various genres of music from baroque to contemporary, jazz to traditional hymn arrangements as well as exploring a bit of world music every year. By exposing students to a variety of music, they gain they gain perspective on the art form and proficiency in a wide range of musical styles and choral techniques. Variety means versatility and making informed artistic choices when interpreting a piece of music.

    Computers and Technology Medium integration

      Effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy through the curriculum. However, this is not a dominant focus.
      Learn about the different computers and technology approaches  

    • What LCBI High School says: At LCBI we use computers for research, for testing, and for instruction. In Computer Science 20 and 30 students learn how computers work, how the internet works, and how to code in Python.

    • Program covers:

      Subject = offered
      Computer science
      Web design

    Physical Education
    • What LCBI High School says: We strive to have all students participate in a physical education class through the course of their secondary school experience. Over 50% of our students are active on a daily basis. Being physically active is an important component of educating the whole child - mind, body, and spirit.

    Religious Education We have no compulsory religion courses
    • Approach to teaching religious and secular curricula

      Completely segregated
      Mostly segregated
      Completely integrated
      Mostly integrated
      Not applicable
    • Approach to teaching religion

      Scripture as literal
      Scripture as interpretive
    • What LCBI High School says: LCBI has a Lutheran heritage and religious education is rooted in Lutheran theology. Christian Ethics is a core course in each of the students' grade ten, eleven and twelve school years. Courses examine social justice issues, grace, forgiveness, and explore both old and new testaments of the bible. The course also examines various christian denominations and world religions through a Lutheran Christian lens as well as the historical importance of Martin Luther.

    Sex and Health Education Doesn’t follow Saskatchewan curriculum
    Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

    What LCBI High School says: Sex-education is a unit of study within the Human Anatomy and Biology curriculum. Sex-education is also a part of Wellness 10 that all grade 10 students must take as a core course.

    Mostly value-neutral

    By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.

    Fairly value-based

    Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.


    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.


    This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.

    What LCBI High School says: Sex-education is a unit of study within the Human Anatomy and Biology curriculum. Sex-education is also a part of Wellness 10 that all grade 10 students must take as a core course.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What LCBI High School says about flexible pacing: We strive to meet the needs of all students learning recognizing that students learn in different ways and we differentiate our instruction and assessment to meet those needs.

    Academic Culture Supportive

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    What LCBI High School says: LCBI could be defined as having a supportively rigorous academic culture. While we do not actively seek out high achieving students, we do seek out students who are driven and want to learn. We then take those students and put them in an environment where teacher will get to know each student individually and ensure all students are both supported and challenged in class.

    Developmental Priorities Spiritual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Spiritual
    Individuals with inner resourcefulness, strong faith, and respect for God or a higher power.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What LCBI High School says: LCBI is a Christian school and we believe that all students are gifted by God. We provide them with a safe and supportive environment to explore their gifts and develop their potential as children of God. LCBI strives to develop all students into well-rounded, compassionate, global citizens who are discerning, confident of their talents, and steadfast in character.

    Special Needs Support Resource Assistance

He has shared the stage with numerous country superstars such as Big and Rich, Randy Houser, Joe Nichols, Jana Kramer, Dierks Bentley, and more. Sorestad’s songs have made their way to both artists and Nashville based publishing companies. Recently he was named to the “Ones to Watch” list at Nashville Songwriters Association International that recognizes new hit country songwriters. Sorestad grew up in the small farming community of Buchanan, Saskatchewan. He attributes his musical upbringing to his family and to having access to a piano and the Lutheran Book of Worship (“the green one”). From a young age, Sorestad’s parents gave him a diverse musical upbringing by having vinyl from various styles: classical, crooners, country, and everything in between. Sorestad attended LCBI starting in Grade 10, sang in the LCBI Concert Choir, and found a staff and student body who were more talented than he’d ever seen. For three years, he surrounded himself with friends who could sing, play every instrument, and encouraged him to grow both musically and spiritually. It was in 1999 that Sorestad made his first move to the USA to tour with Youth Encounter in a band called “Captive Free.” During that year, Sorestad not only realized that music was going to take him places he’d only dream of, but he met his future wife (Kate (Carroll) Sorestad). After working as Dean of Men for LCBI (2000/01), he auditioned at the University of Saskatchewan and a short 5 years later graduated with two degrees (B. Mus and B. Ed). Sorestad quickly found a position with the Saskatoon Public Schools where he worked at Mount Royal Collegiate. After a tough conversation inspired by a friend’s death, Ryan and Kate decided to pursue their dreams south of the border. Sorestad resigned his position with SPS and hasn’t looked back. His songs have already been recorded, and can be heard on Country Music Radio in the USA. He continues to write, play, and tour knowing that while the road he’s on will take him to new places with new stories, and new songs, that same road can always take him “home.”
    • Calgarian Jason Hastie (Alumni 1992) might arguably be one of the brightest country music stars on the Canadian music scene. Not only does Hastie have a history with country music that dates back more than a decade, he is also an entrepreneur, an author, and a certified accounting professional.

    Grad 2017 - Valedictorian Address

    2017 Validictorian Address


    Good afternoon family and friends and Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you all for coming to this very special weekend of ours. For years we have worked hard and the day has finally arrived. Thank you for your support, encouragement, and love you have given us. Without you all, we couldn’t have made it to this day and we thank God that you have been a part of our lives.

    Before I acknowledge our graduates, I’d like to acknowledge our 2016-2017 LCBI family.  Firstly, our staff. I strongly feel God’s presence here because of you all. You were called to this place to serve and you have been a blessing to all of us. Your devotion to your job, to us, and most of all to God is an example I hope to match one day. We have grown, matured, and we have become better people because we came here. Thank you.

    Grade Elevens and Tens, I am sorry to say we are leaving you behind. The memories we have shared are so very precious and the jokes… let’s just say I hope I forget them. As a student body we have shared an entire year of laughing, loving, and serving our Lord and I can’t thank you all enough for being here today. I pray that as we go on our new journeys, you will fill our school with even more love and laughter than you did before. We leave here as a whole people knowing we are loved by God and his servants, the community of LCBI. Also, I thank you in advance for all the cleanup you are going to do on Monday morning. It is much appreciated.

    So… this is it. We’ve been at this gig for about thirteen years. We’ve learned basic math and how to tie our shoes. We learned why Canada became a nation and if you run for political office wearing a wig and your principal’s grad dress, you may win. Our lives have always had school in our focus. Now the focus is a little blurred. Some of us feel the call to university, others hear the call to tech schools. And some of us haven’t heard a call yet and are really hoping the reception gets better sometime soon. This is a scary step we face. However the Bible urges us not to worry. Matthew 6: 26 says, “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” The jump between teenager and adult can feel terrifying but we can take comfort in knowing that God is there every step of the way.

    Now I’d like the audience to look at the beautiful and handsome young people to my left. They are in fact a bunch of goofballs. They are the ones who decided it would be a good idea to ask for (and subsequently receive) slushies and ice cream sandwiches on two separate occasions. This is also the class that jumps out from under the desk to scare Mrs. Engen and reads the lyrics to “Fresh Prince of Bel-air” for a Grade 11 English assignment. This is also the class that I love. These are some of the strongest and hardest working people I have met. They are funny, unique, and most of all they are truly, as Mr. Hove likes to say, daughters and sons of LCBI.

    Class of 2017, you are amazing. I am honoured to stand up here and represent you. God has made you into his masterpiece and it is beautiful. My prayer is that we will look back on our time here and value the blessing it is truly. You are godly people and I am lucky to be a part of your class. And, without any doubt, I know that you will continue to be an example of Christ’s love wherever you may go


    4 Gold Medals in 2014 Provincial Track and Field Competition

    In 2014, LCBI sent 7 athletes to SHSAA Provincial Track and Field competition. This is the largest team that LCBI has ever had qualify for Track and Field Provincials. This group had a very successful season setting new records and personal bests throughout sectional, regional and district competition.

    We would like to congratulate all the athletes and coach, Mr. Sorenson, for advancing to provincials. Special congratulations to Taylor A and Kayden J, our provincial champions. Taylor set a new personal best and won Sr. Girls Javelin. Kayden brought home Gold in Sr. Boys Shotput, 100 m Hurdles and Long Jump. Kayden also placed second in points for Sr. Boys aggregate. 

    LCBI was also a part of the West Central District which was awarded the most improved district at the competition. 


    LCBI Selected as IB Candidate School

    LCBI High School received word on April 30th, 2014 that it is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. LCBI is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy-a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that LCBI High School believes is important for our students.

    We now enter the authorization phase, and much work is left to be done. A special word of appreciation goes out to our IBDP Coordinator Designate, Dr. Cristina Pennington, for her expertise and guidance through this first candidacy phase.

    As we move forward in this rigorous process, please keep us in your prayers. We are excited and invigorated for what is to come in the near future! We are blessed!

    *Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

    LCBI Recognized by the SCIC as a Global Classroom in the 306

    Each year, the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation recognizes a number Saskatchewan schools for the Global Citizenship of their students. This year, LCBI had the honour of being recognized for our Take-Out-Tuesday program and Mission Experience Trips.

    Take-Out-Tuesday takes place one afternoon a month and is an event that allows the staff and students of LCBI to go out and volunteer in Outlook and surrounding communities. These opportunities can be anything from tying quilts to send overseas, to singing and visiting at care facilities in Outlook, to volunteering at the Food Bank or Friendship Inn in Saskatoon, to providing random acts of snow shovelling in Outlook.

    Mission Experience Trips are week long annual trips that have allowed students to travel to Mexico, Grenada, Washington, DC, Vancouver, BC, and Ghana. These trips expose students to different cultures and experiences that broaden their world views and make them stronger Global Citizens.

    You can find out  more about these programs in the video that SCIC made about LCBI!
