Hosting an International Student

Our International Students are here to complete their high school education and continue on to college here in the U.S. thereafter.

Student hosting is for the 10-month school year. The monthly stipend for families is $1,000.

Families should expect to treat our International students as you would any other student living in your home. We work hard to find the student that will be the best fit for your family.
If you are interested in hosting one of our International Students, please fill out the Host Family Application

Amy Brown will contact you with more information.
