Walter Murray Collegiate Institute, also known as Walter Murray Collegiate and WMCI, is a high school serving grades 9 to 12, located in south-eastern Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This public secondary school was established in 1962 and is supported by the infrastructure of the Nutana Suburban Centre, a part of the Nutana Suburban Development Area. This school falls under the jurisdiction of the Saskatoon Public School Division.

The school is named after Dr. Walter Charles Murray, first president of the University of Saskatchewan. It is one of only two Saskatoon high schools to offer the Advanced Program (the other is Bedford Road) for gifted students, and a full French Immersion program (the other is Marion M. Graham Collegiate). WMCI has a technology wing that offers mechanics, welding, electronics, wood-working, machining, and photography/graphic arts to its students. WMCI also offers courses to those learning English as a second language.

As well, Walter Murray offers many successful athletic programs, such as its cross country team, which is a 7 consecutive time defending city championship winning team, wrestling team, whose girls won cities in 2007 and boys were runners-up, as well as their football program, where Walter Murray had made it to the city final 3 of the past 8 years and their junior football team, who sported the only undefeated record in the city. Recently, they added a hockey program to their list of athletic programs.[timeframe?]

Currently its feeder schools are Alvin Buckwold School, Brevoort Park School, Brunskill School, Greystone Heights School, Holliston School, Hugh Cairns, V. C. School, Lakeridge School, Lakeview School, Prince Philip School and Wildwood School.
