Become a Host Family for an International Student
July 02, 2018
Have you ever considered becoming a host family for an international student? The International Student Program at Thetford Academy brings a diversity of cultures and viewpoints to our corner of the world. Over the 7 years of the program’s existence, we have welcomed 26 students from 11 far-flung regions of China as well as from Switzerland, Greece, and Rwanda, and for the 2018-2019 school year we are proud to add Korea to our list!
This program has allowed our community to participate in a global exchange of ideas, and we need just one more host family to help us continue this tradition for the 2018-2019 school year.
What is required? A willingness to support an international student socially, emotionally and academically in a clean, safe, living and learning environment for a period of 10 months (one school year). Students range in age from 15 to 18 years old and Thetford Academy provides a generous monthly stipend to defray living expenses.
