A Host Family with their student and friends!


As someone who cares a lot about your community, you can bring an international perspective to it-while giving a young student a life-changing experience.

When you host an international exchange student through the CIEE High School Study USA program, you help open minds and create opportunities for engagement that can strengthen your school and community alike.

CIEE partners with hundreds of families like yours and brings:

  • Reliability and expertise: With 65 years of experience, we’ll match your family with the right student from our pool of applicants
  • Local support: As your local coordinator, I live in your community-so you always have someone to turn to for immediate guidance
  • Peace of mind: All CIEE students have full travel insurance in case of an emergency or medical need-to give you confidence and eliminate hassles

Host families receive a stipend to help offset the costs of hosting a student. CIEE makes all this possible and very seamless-at every step of the process, 24/7. Learn more about CIEE and how fulfilling it is to be a host family>

Currently we have one student who will be attending Terra Linda High School starting in August. Luiza is a sixteen year old girl from Brazil, who loves to play volleyball, tennis, travel and volunteering with children.

We are offering a $300 referral, per student, for recommending a family who hosts. Our information is below, please message me with any questions or start a host family application at
