Southlands Schools International has its own homestay program that provides international students with a healthy home and a family environment in which to thrive. Host families create a family atmosphere so students are well taken care of, loved, and supported during their stay at SCS.  Whether international students are here for short-term stay during our Summer Camp program or while they’re attending school, international students will feel right at home with our families.
We carefully screen host families both nationwide and statewide for criminal background. Host families are interviewed and homes are inspected to ensure they fit the criteria as a host family. Approved host families are committed to ensure that the international campers have a great and positive experience in America. We hold orientations for all host families to train them on how to assist the international campers assimilate to their temporary home and culture. All group leaders, host families and campers are able to contact the homestay representative at any time for emergencies. Our program is designed to give the parents who are far away a peace of mind knowing that their children are in a safe environment and are well taken care of.
