Homestay families play an important role in creating a positive experience for international students who choose to study in Central Okanagan Public Schools. Our homestay program strives to place students with host families who will welcome the students as a part of their families and provide a safe, nurturing home environment.
Our homestay coordinator team offers ongoing support to students and host families in regards to all aspects of life in Canada, and to ensure that both host families and students have a rewarding experience while learning about other cultures. Our goal is to create relationships between host families and students that will last a lifetime.
Hosting an international student is also a wonderful opportunity to share our culture with others and learn about other cultures in return.
