Our Host Families
SHARE! Host families are as diverse as our students! Host families can be two-parent households with young children or teenagers, single parent families, families with adopted children, foster parents, as well as couples or single people who do not have children or who have grown children. Host families provide basic room and board for the students while they attend the local high school closest to their host family's home.
Families are able to select the student that best suits their family.
