Become a Host Family
The King’s Academy is seeking dynamic, Christian families who are interested in providing a safe and nurturing home for international students. If you live within a 30 minute commute of the school, subscribe to TKA’s Statement of Faith, and have an extra bedroom, you are eligible to apply.
Please take a look at these frequently asked questions relating to becoming a Host Family:
Living with an American family enables our students to gain first-hand cultural understanding. That is a big responsibility for our host families that does demand time and attention of each member of the host family. Host families should treat international students as if they were members of their own family; involving them in activities, events, and communication. Families should encourage students to become active participants in their church and should expect to monitor the student’s academic, social, spiritual, and physical well-being in the same way that you would for your own child.
Hosting an international student is an incredible opportunity to evangelize through your own testimony. TKA provides regular opportunities for communication with the student’s natural parents and plan student life events throughout the year that are designed to assist in this process of cultural integration.
