Bosque School offers a Homestay Program for international students. Host parents act as surrogate parents for the student, helping them adjust to a new culture and language and to negotiate the stress of beginning a new school. Bosque will make it a priority to place international students with a host family that is connected to the school. Most host families are parents of students, past students or faculty members. The host family will welcome you into their home as a member of the family. Your host family will provide you with transportation and support for your activities both inside and outside of school hours such as sports, art, music, and theater.

Interested in becoming a HOST FAMILY?
Welcoming an international student into your home is rewarding in so many ways. These students are open to learn about you and your family, your culture, new foods, and experiences. Sharing your family's American way of life with a student from another culture, connecting to your community in exciting new ways, and bringing their world into your home is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In return, you will learn a lot about the culture and lifestyle of this new person in your home.
Important things for host families to know:
- The international student does not need to be the same age and/or grade as one of your own children. Many times, it is beneficial to have students who are one-two years in age difference to allow them to have separate class schedules and extra-curricular activities away from home.
- The international students come prepared to learn at school and from their host family. They come with spending money for their time out with friends, clothing, and school activities and trips.
- The host family is paid a monthly stipend to help with living expenses such as food and transportation. The host family will provide three meals a day and transportation to and from school and activities for the international student.
- The host family should provide a separate bedroom and bed for the international student. They should provide transportation to and from school and extra-curricular activities as needed.
- The host family will include the international student in family activities and holiday celebrations.
- The host family will have amazing memories and a new friend for life.
