International Student Homestay Only

Homestay students looking for a once in a lifetime study abroad experience are in good hands with AmeriStudent. Alongside excellent high schools, perfect locations, and caring host families, you can find incredible career opportunities and newfound independence in your homestay program. To top it off, we understand the importance of safety and comfort during an international student homestay, which is why we go to extreme lengths to ensure every participant feels welcome and satisfied with their home away from home. 

Why More Students Choose AmeriStudent as Their Homestay Provider

In the past, and in the case of many homestay programs, families sending their students abroad on have had to rely on a system that places their students with a random host family. As an international student homestay agency, AmeriStudent recognized that students are more likely to thrive in their study abroad experiences when they are comfortable with their living situations and with finding the most compatible host family possible. We, therefore, have created a system that allows international families to select from homestay situations a family that they think will best suit their child’s needs
