The Host Family Experience

Our Program offers students the opportunity to experience a new culture while receiving an excellent education at some of the top private middle and high schools. A central part of your student’s experience in the United States is their relationship with you, the Homestay Provider.

As a host family, you’ll provide your international student with the following:

      • A private bedroom with desk/internet for each student (2 students max per family)
      • Meals throughout the week and weekend (students usually purchase lunch at school)
      • Transportation to/from school and extra-curricular activities (busing and carpooling when available)
      • Most importantly, a loving, safe and supportive home environment

During their stay with you, exchange students will enhance their language skills and gain insights into American daily life. Homestay Providers treat their students as part of their family and enjoy learning about each other’s cultures.

Additionally, students can take preparatory courses to increase their chances of being accepted into top universities and colleges in the country. Hosting a student is a fulfilling experience for everyone involved.
