About the Immersion Hosting Programs
An experience as unique as your family
This hosting program is unique in that both your family’s experience and the student’s program is controlled by you. Students should become 100% part of your family life and normal activity – sharing in your hobbies, interests and community. Hosting an immersion student like this for a short time period is also so beneficial to you as it allows your family to spend such a great amount of quality time with them, learning about their language, culture, and interests.
Summer Immersion Hosting
We have a wave of international students who are looking to travel to the US between June and August for 2 to 5 weeks. The attraction of this full immersion program for our students is that there are no formal activities organized by Xplore, which gives you as the host family the opportunity to showcase your favorite parts of your community and the activities your family enjoys. You can schedule things at your family’s own pace, safe in the knowledge that Xplore are on hand for any support you may require.
After living with you, some students combine their experience with a couple of weeks at a local American summer camp.
This short term High School immersion program allows international students to experience attending a US high school in a shorter time frame. Offering to host a student on a short-term program like this during the school semester is great for families with similar aged kids also attending high school and on the weekends, allows you all to spend quality time together giving your student a taste of life of a typical US high schooler.
The program runs from 4 to 8 weeks and is suited to those students who perhaps cannot or do not want to be away from their normal school for a long period of time. During their time in the US, the students are looking to immerse themselves in our culture and communities, so you are in control of what they see and do!
