Heritage Student Foundation (HSF) welcomes families who are interested in hosting.
High school students accepted to high schools through our program reside with host families for the duration of their studies in order to experience complete cultural and English language immersion, students reside with local families.
Heritage Student Foundation offers monthly homestay fee of $900 to the host for hosting each student. The monthly compensation fee covers room, board, and transportation.
Transportation commitments will include airport pick-up & drop-off, along with commuting to/from school as busing is not available.
In order to host an international student, the prospective host must provide a single room with a bed, a desk, a chair, a lamp, a dresser and etc to the student.
Students will be responsible for their own personal expenses, and they come prepared with laptop computers, cellphones, and medical insurance.
Hosts will also need to provide breakfast and dinner during weekdays and three meals during weekends and holidays.
No prior hosting experience is necessary.
All persons who are open-minded, understanding, and willing to open their homes and hearts are welcome.

My decision to have a foreign exchange student stay with us has been a wonderful experience.
My son and I have enjoyed having an international student very much. He was respectful and very fun to have in our home.
Heritage Student Foundation was very easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions.
They always made me feel at ease. L.B., Waukesha, WI
I would like to thank you for sending such an excellent student from China.
After several months, he feels like a welcome addition to our family. A.A., Elmhurst, NY
