Host families needed for international students

Educatius Group, in partnership with The Charles Finney School, will welcome international students for the 2019-2020 school year.  Students come from around the world and several have already been accepted for the coming season.  Educatius is actively recruiting local host families to apply to the program now! 

Our students:

•             are between the ages of 15 and 18

•             have established English speaking abilities

•             come with their own spending money and medical insurance

•             must follow program and host family rules as well as maintain a solid GPA

•             are eager to join a busy American family and household!


Host Families are not required to have a high school-aged child living at home currently; we welcome families of all shapes and sizes.


Our Local Host Families:

•            have space in their home and love in their hearts to share with a young international scholar

•            complete an online application with background checks as well as a home visit with an Educatius representative

•            provide students with full room and board as well as daily interaction and support

•            are supported by a Local Program Coordinator throughout the duration of the program

•            receive a monthly stipend to help offset the costs of welcoming a student into their home
