Homestay Program

LPI Learning will find you a Host Family for Homestay Accommodation!

Finding a host family for day school homestay accommodation can be a difficult. LPI Learning is an experienced full-service homestay organization that can assist students with host family placement across the USA.

LPI Learning places students with carefully screened host families across America. Students are placed with host families which live close to their US school. The host family screening process includes a comprehensive online application, telephone reference checks, a background check and an in-home interview with an LPI Learning Local Representative. Monthly reports are completed by our Local Representatives to ensure students are doing well in school, socially and maintain a good relationship with their host family.

Our organization follows the best practices in homestay standards established by The Council on Standards in International Education and Travel (CSIET), as an accredited member. Our Local Representatives are focused upon our students’ educational success, cultural exchange experience and safety.
