The International Student Program at ECC will be in its third year at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. This program has provided not only a great cultural experience for our students, but a strong financial contribution to our school as well.
 
We are in need of additional host families for the upcoming school year. Currently, there are two candidates that have been interviewed and are waiting on acceptance to ECC. Both students are from China and would be entering the 9th grade, one male and one female.
 
Some things to consider about hosting:
 
– It is a 10-month commitment. Signing on to host for one year does not require you to host for additional years.
 
– A stipend of $8,000 is paid to the host parents to cover two meals per day and any additional utilities incurred by having an extra person in the household. All other expenses are paid for by the student’s parents.
 
– A Skype interview would be conducted between you and the student before any decision would be made.

Thank you for your consideration.
