WHY BECOME A HOST FAMILY?
Hosting is so much more than providing a bedroom to a student. Hosting is a life changing experience for you and your family. Experience the benefits of learning a new culture, open your heart and home to an international student, and gain cultural insight and a life-long friend. Host families are provided a monthly stipend in order to cover costs associated with preparing a room for the student, utilities, food, entertainment, and transportation.
FOR STUDENTS FROM CHINA, TAIWAN AND HONG KONG
Saint Thomas More Academy is proud to partner with the Cambridge Network to recruit host families. The Cambridge Network specializes in matching international students with committed, American host families in our school community by providing ongoing, local support to both students and hosts through their partner company GPHomestay.
