Host Family

  • Become a Host Family

    The benefits of hosting an exchange student are truly limitless

    If you have been thinking about hosting an exchange student, we encourage you to consider the opportunity regardless of where you do or do not have children in the home.

    Just as no two exchange students are alike, no two host families are alike. SJCHS seeks diversity in host families so students can get the true American experience. Living with an American family or individual is almost always beneficial to the student regardless of family makeup, which is why it is not required that host parents already have children in the home. What is important is that families help them acclimate to their new environment with a built-in support system and providing an immersive experience of life and culture in the United States. Although exchange certainly benefits the student, hosting will benefit families as well. In fact, families that don’t already have children in the home may be uniquely affected by the experience of hosting.
