About the Academic Year Program
Invite inspiration into your home
We have been overwhelmed by the positive impact host parents tell us hosting a studying student has had on them and their families, which we believe is down to the tenacity of our students. Each student brings with them an inspiring and adventurous spirit, ready to jump into a foreign environment to learn about life in the US, and achieve the best education they can.
The Student Experience
We believe our hometowns, schools and communities should be a home away from home for our international students, where they feel comfortable to dive into an authentic engagement in the American lifestyle. For this reason, we strongly encourage our families to integrate their student into all aspects of home life – from introducing them to friends, family and neighbors, to taking them food shopping, allowing them to cook a family meal, showing them around the neighborhood and visiting local points of interest.
For students, studying abroad in the US will end up being one of the most unforgettable experiences of their lives. As a host family, you play a significant part in making this possible and the memories that students leave our country with. Students expect to have a warm, supportive host family to help them navigate their US school and all of the opportunities for new activities and hobbies available to them. Students often make friends and spend time with them over the weekends. Other times, some host families make plans to show their students all of their favorite places that are unique to their area.
Hear it from our host families...
One of the greatest things our children have learned is to appreciate, respect and love other cultures and beliefs. We hope that this legacy of love will be a part of our family for generations.
