International students are placed with host families while attending the Academy; these arrangements are made by the students themselves or with the assistance from the school. Often, these host families already have a child attending our school and are thus fully vested in their success. The host family provides for the student in their home the following: food, normal household amenities and a bedroom of his/her own. Host families also provide, or arrange for, transportation to and from school each day, and to various school events.
