Become a Host Family

Opening your home to an International Student is a rewarding experience for families. Families have the opportunity to learn new customs when hosting a student from another country. In turn, you will help an international student learn about our customs and practices. Host families may receive a monthly stipend to offset any costs. Host families are expected to provide room and board (students may share a room but must have their own bed) including all meals. Students will attend Bishop Snyder High School, and they are expected to participate fully in family activities and plans. To learn more about this wonderful opportunity, contact our Admissions Office for details.
