Welcoming Homestay Students into
a Safe & Friendly Environment

Other homestay programs are known to rely on a system that places its students with a random host family. However, AmeriStudent recognizes that international students are more likely to thrive during their homestay when they feel comfortable with their living situation and a friendly, compatible host family. 

As a result, we’ve created a system that allows students to personally choose from our selection of vetted families. You can tour prospective homes and hold virtual meet-and-greets to find the perfect host family for you.

We take our students’ safety seriously, as all families must successfully pass national criminal background checks, in-home interviews, home inspections, several orientations, and trainings. AmeriStudent remains closely involved and connected with all parties throughout the entire process, doing everything in our power to facilitate an incredible homestay high school student experience.
