Host a Bell-Jeff International Student

Bellarmine-Jefferson High School has partnered with gphomestay! Gphomestay is an educational service company that provides quality homestays for international students who attend American high schools.

We have several international students attending Bellarmine-Jefferson and we are planning to expand the program. For this reason, we are searching for caring families to open their home to an international student. Our students enjoy getting involved and learning more about American culture. This is also a great opportunity for your family to learn more about a different culture and way of life.

Host families receive a monthly stipend of $1,300 to cover any costs that arise with having an extra person in your home. Host families also have access to ongoing support from a local Residential Coordinator.

You are welcome to host a student for one or two semesters, but there is also the possibility of choosing to host again the following year. The students typically study in the United States with the intention of graduating from an American high school.

Do you know someone who might be interested in hosting a student? For every approved host family that lists you as a reference on their application, you will be rewarded a $300 referral bonus!

If you or someone you know are interested in becoming a host or looking for more information, please download the flier below, visit gphomestay’s website or click here to fill out a Host Inquiry Form.
