We provide international students the opportunity to live with an American family

  • Experience family living in the U.S.
  • Establish relationships with Americans
  • Increase proficiency in English

Each Homestay family has successfully completed an application form, home inspection, personal interview and background check. Every effort is made to match students with the family most appropriate for them. Our Homestay Program is managed on-campus and the college receives no Homestay funds except the student’s initial application fee.

Social and Family Interaction

Homestay families encourage interaction and invite students to join them in occasional family activities. Homestay is not simply a room and board arrangement. Homestay families are respectful of your religious or nonreligious beliefs, culture and values. Students are expected to be respectful toward them as well. Although a mutual exchange of ideas, beliefs and values is encouraged, no one will pressure students to adopt their beliefs and values.
