Host Family Opportunities for the 2016-2017 School Year

As part of the school district’s efforts to expand its global education program, Newton South High School has invited several international students to join us for the 2016-2017 school year.  Through this program, NSHS has and will continue to receive excellent students from around the world. We really do need the community’s help with this mission.  Many Newton families have become host families to these students, and this has proved to be a fantastic experience. Click here to “meet” the incoming international students and consider becoming a host family this year.

To help us attract host families, Newton Public Schools is working with Educatius International, a corporate partner on this program.  As a host family, you would receive a monthly stipend of between $800-$1000 per month.  Educatius asks that you provide a loving and supportive family environment.  This is a wonderful and educational experience for everyone involved and often leads to lifelong friendships.

We are proud that these students select Newton South from among many other fine high schools in the state. If you are interested in participating in this culturally enriching experience, please email Claudette Rowe or call 508-246-7028. You may also email Kara Veley, English Language Learner Liaison, directly or call her at 617-559-6516 if you’d like to learn more about this program.
