Part of the learning experience is interacting with your Canadian home stay family. We are happy to place international students with Highroad families who care for your children and meet their physical, emotional and social needs. International students attend church with their host family and in this way are encouraged to live a life of faith. Supportive families help students overcome cultural barriers and help them understand the Canadian way of life. And of course having to speak English with your host family is a great way to learn to speak the language in a relaxed conversational setting.
All of our host families are required to fill out an application form and have a home visit to ensure that they are suitable as host families.
As the International Student Coordinator, we make home stay placements based on compatibility and the interests of both the student and family. Although it is not always necessary we can arrange visits with the home stay as requested by parents to make sure that the student is comfortable and happy.
