We strongly encourage our students to participate in the Homestay program. Living with an American family is the best way for you to improve your English, learn about our culture and adapt to a new life in the United States.

The Homestay Program's objective is to provide you with a warm welcome to Arizona and lots of support while you adjust to a new culture.

Our homestay families are carefully chosen by our Placement Coordinator.  Our families and individuals live in safe residential neighborhoods within a 45 minute bus ride.
