Host Family FAQ

Hosting International Students

Thanks so much for your interest in hosting!  Opening your home to an international student offers the exciting opportunity to experience a new culture without even leaving home!

Host families commit to housing a student for one school year (mid-August through June).  Host families provide meals for the students, a room to study and sleep in, transportation to and from school and extracurricular activities, and a home church.   The student becomes part of your family, taking part in family chores & activities.  A stipend is given to families to cover food and transportation costs.

"Hosting was such a great experience overall.  It was a joy and a blessing to open our home to an international student.  Our own children benefited from learning about another culture and we thoroughly enjoyed having [the student] in our home."  NorthPointe International Host Parent
