Hosting an International Student

Welcoming a foreign exchange student to your family is rewarding in so many ways. You can share your family's American way of life with a student from another culture, connect to your community in exciting new ways, and learn first hand about life in other countries.

We are currently inviting families to consider hosting an exchange student for the 2019-2020 academic year.  We are also looking for families that might be interested in part-time hosting.  If you are willing to relieve a host family for a week to a month throughout the school year, we would be like to explore this option with you.

You provide the student with love, room and board. The student will provide his/her own insurance, tuition, transportation to school and spending money. Host parents can specify the gender of the student they are willing to host and may give input to help select the specific student as well. Host families also receive $100.00 per month you host to help with any unanticipated costs.

Find out more on our website, email, or call Michele Christman at 618-853-7300.
