Become a Host Parent
To more fully learn and understand other cultures and traditions, St. Joseph's Prep families are invited to host an international student. We are seeking families from within the school community who see this as an opportunity to develop new perspectives while providing a loving and suitable home for one of our international students.
As a host family, you and your family can experience these benefits:
- Develop a direct and long-lasting influence on the young person who will lives with you
- Gain a broader perspective on world issues
- Increase your knowledge of another country
- Gain deeper insight into the values and patterns of your own family and culture
Hosting an exchange student is a tremendous experience; it is also a significant commitment to welcome a young person from another culture into your home for a few months or for a full year. That’s why we match the students to households with great care, taking into account several factors to ensure a wonderful experience for both the student and your family.
If you are interested in becoming one of our host families, we ask that you fill out the application and return it to the Prep. Should you have any questions concerning this particular program or other future international programs, please contact our Office of Admission at 215-978-1958.
