Visiting students, ages 15-18, from around the world including Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and Thailand are seeking host families in and around Georgetown for the upcoming 2014-2015 academic school year.
Host families are needed for the fall semester and full school year.
Host families (traditional families, singles, empty nesters, etc.) serve as mentors and a home base for their student. Visiting students participate as active members of the family and integrate into their hostís daily routines and traditions just like any other family member.
iE-USA, the sponsoring program, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting education and understanding through intercultural and academic exchange. iE-USA is certified by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel and strictly adheres to all U.S. Department of State Student Exchange Program regulations and guidelines.
To learn more about how host an international high school exchange student, contact the iE South Carolina representative, Emily Rolin at firstname.lastname@example.org 269-625-4662. Families interested in hosting this year must apply by Aug. 15.
