The International Student Program at ECC will be in its fourth year at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. This program has provided a great cultural experience for our students.

We are in need of additional host families for next school year. As of today, we have a need to place two boys (one from China and one from Vietnam) and one girl from Vietnam. All of them will be entering 10th grade.

Some things to consider about hosting:

• It is a 10-month commitment. Signing up 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/FaceTime interview would be conducted between you and the student before any decision would be made.

Our current and former international students have been wonderful additions to our school family. Please contact Mrs. Kim Schlimm, Director of International Students ((814) 834-7800 ext. 231, if you have any questions, would like to learn more, or are interested in hosting a student.

Thank you for your consideration!
