Homestay Services

Our homestay is unique because unlike many programs, we run our own homestay program. We use the profiles provided to match our international students with our local families. This allows students to be immersed in our communities where they enjoy a customized local cultural experience. Our homestay families provide a welcoming home and family atmosphere. Our coordinators, who live in these communities, guide students in their academic studies, introduce them to local students and encourage them to join after-school activities. They help students adjust to life in a new land and ensure homestay parents are informed of their progress on a regular basis. Our homestay families create a home away from home for our international students!
