Hosting Opportunities

Evergreen Lutheran High School offers a homestay program for its international students. This is one of our student’s favorite parts of the international program at ELHS! Staying with a host family gives students a complete immersion into American culture and daily opportunities to practice English skills outside of the school setting.

Our ELHS host families provide:

  • A safe, loving, caring family environment
  • Daily opportunities to practice English and experience American culture
  • A comfortable bedroom furnished with bed, bedding, closet and dresser
  • A quiet place to study with Wi-Fi connection
  • Shared spaces in the home for relaxation and socialization
  • Three meals a day, as well as snacks
  • Transportation to and from school for all school events, as well as transportation for shopping and social activities

All international students in our program stay with families who are known personally by the ELHS administration. We only place our students with families that we know personally! To ensure the excellence of the homestay program, Evergreen Lutheran High School visits all host family homes in addition to requiring a thorough application and background check.

International students may also arrange to live with relatives if they live near Evergreen Lutheran High School. In this case, the student’s family is responsible for all living arrangements, student care, and transportation to and from school.

This was our first time housing an international student, what a wonderful experience to learn the differences in culture and idioms. We are happy to share our home with these students and look forward to more experiences. – The Bishop Family

We had so much fun sharing our home and culture including some of our favorite places to visit, foods, and family traditions. We learned so much about her and her family and their traditions as well. It was such an amazing and positive experience for all of us, and we made a lifelong friendship :) – Circelli Family
