Host Family

One way for our families to get involved is serving as a “host family” for an international student. Host families welcome the students into their homes and hearts. They include the students in evening and weekend activities. In addition to providing the students with room and board (financial stipend provided), host families agree to arrange for transportation to school (international students are completing a full academic program alongside all of our other students). The students bring their own spending money and are fully insured during their stay. Students do not expect red-carpet treatment! They want to learn about our country and our culture by living here as a “native” rather than as a guest. Students are expected to help with household duties during their stay and to join in all normal family activities.
