At FH International High School, we believe social integration is key to overall success for our students. Therefore, our homestay program is designed to promote self-confidence and cultural integration within the community. While living with a Canadian family, our students learn about the Canadian culture, improve their English skills and experience a smoother adaptation process.
Homestay Family Selection Process
Students fill out the homestay application form at least one month before arrival. Depending on our students’ preferences, we affiliate homestay families with our students.
Homestay families are selected after multiple interviews and home visits. We make sure the living conditions meet the standards of FH International and our students.
If the students are not satisfied with their homestay within the first month of their stay, and have a valid reason, we place our students with another homestay family.
Each student has a fully furnished private bedroom.
Students are also given the option of shared rooms or private washrooms depending on the availability and budget.
Location and Transportation
Most of our homestay families are located within 30 to 45-minute bus drive to school.
Students may also require drop-off and pick-up from their homestay families depending on the availability.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided by the homestay families. Breakfast and lunch packs can be prepared by the students.
If the students have any dietary restrictions or allergies, they must inform the school and the homestay families in advance.
Students are required to inform the school and their homestay families about arrival times to make sure homestay families and their room will be ready. Students are also required to provide their flight information as soon as they purchase their flight tickets.
Each homestay family may have their own house rules. We encourage all of our students to discuss these rules within the first week of arrival. It is also significantly important to talk to the homestay families regarding any concern or questions. Remember a positive attitude and communication is the key to a pleasant homestay experience and our homestay families are always there to help you.
