Become a Host Family

What does it take to host an international student? To ensure the satisfaction of our families and students, we have several requirements families must meet in order to be eligible to host. In turn, we provide a variety of support to our families throughout their experience.

Our Host Families Must:

  • Live in an English-speaking household
  • Provide a bedroom for the student with their own bed, desk & closet/dresser
  • Prepare 3 meals per day
  • Complete an application & interview process
  • Pass a criminal background check

Our Host Families Receive:

  • Host family orientation to prepare for the students’ arrival
  • 24/7 local & national support with a 1-800 emergency hotline
  • Monthly stipend per student to help offset associated expenses
  • Relationships & memories that last a lifetime

To learn more or sign-up to host, please fill out our online form. An Educatius representative in your area will help start the application process.

How do I complete my application? After signing up, someone from Educatius will send you a link via email to log into our Zapp tool and begin the application process. You can work directly with your assigned local coordinator to address any questions. In the meantime, feel free to download these instructions to get started.
