Show Homer Strong to All Parts of the World!!
Host an International Exchange Student!!
Open your heart, your mind, and your home to an International High School student for one semester or a full school year. This opportunity is a great way to support Homer Community Schools, give a student a unique educational experience, and learn about a new culture at the same time!
What Do I Need to Provide?
* Students must have their own bed, but they can share a room with a same gender students.
* Three meals a day (if students choose to get hot lunch, then it is their responsibility to pay for this.
* A willingness to welcome the student into your family!
What Does the Student Provide?
* All students will have their own health insurance.
* Students are responsible for their own spending money, school expenses, toiletries, etc.
Our students are placed through the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), a non-profit organization that has been working in international education for over 65 years. Each student in the program is individually interviewed to ensure that they have the appropriate maturity level to be a successful participant in our program. CIEE requires at least a “C+” average to be accepted and they also require students to maintain this minimum grade average throughout their stay. Students have taken an English proficiency test to prove their ability to be academically successful while attending an American high school. Tutoring will be provided for a struggling student.
Students are between 15-18 years old, have their own medical insurance, and spending money. There is no better time than NOW to learn more about our neighbors in the world!!
Please help us make a difference in the world! If unable to host a student and know someone who can, call to find out about our referral bonus. For more information, please click on the link below. Your information will only be shared with Homer Community Schools.
