The Host Family Experience
Hosting an international student can be a life changing experience. Our families have a strong desire to welcome a foreign student and help them experience and learn about American culture. Many international students prefer an immersive experience during their time in the US, attending a public or private day school and living with an American family.
Students are typically between the ages of 14 and 18, depending on the type of school they plan to attend and their grade level. All students arrive in the US with at least an intermediate level of English and further developing their English is a top priority for students.
Families can elect to host the same student for more than one year, however, this is not mandatory. Host families can opt to host more than one student at a time with a maximum of two international students per household.
