An exciting program at Houghton Academy is the opportunity for international students to live with American families instead of in a dormitory.
This program is open to new and returning Academy students, subject to the availability of host families.
Students in this program enjoy the added advantage of round-the-clock English, as well as the extra support and care that are prevalent in a family setting. Students may share a room or have a separate room, depending on the home they are in. Some host families are young, while other hosts have grown children.
In the host family program, the host family transports and feeds their student guest and provides lodging.
The cost for participation in the homestay program is $3,200 per year.
