Become a Host Family for a Newton South International Student

Each school year Newton South High School hosts up to 20 international students through Educatius International. These students come from many different countries – Italy, Brazil, Chile, Norway, and China to name a few. Visiting students go through an application process before they are selected – they are smart, mature, and passionate about intercultural learning opportunities. Our international students bring so much to the hallways of NSHS and to our Newton community.

Host families are to provide a warm and supportive home and family environment; students should become part of your family. We welcome any family (with or a without a high school student of their own) who is excited about this opportunity. Educatius offers a monthly stipend of $700.00 for each student placed in their home and each family can host up to 2 students ($1,400.00). Educatius also works with host families to match them with a student who shares the family’s interests and values. Hosting a student can provide you with amazing opportunities and lifelong friendships.

Open your heart and your home – share our unique community! Invite a NSHS international student into your home. These students will be arriving for the September 2014 school year. To learn more and to apply to become a host family, please contact Jodi Del Razo at or call her at 617-543-8626.
