Become A Host Family
The King’s Academy is seeking Christian families who are interested in providing a safe and nurturing home for international students grades 7th-12th. TKA is a “home away from home” to international students from over 40 countries of origin on 6 continents. Our Homestay program is a unique opportunity for students to accelerate cultural and language learning by becoming an authentic part of a local American family.
TKA’s Homestay program is managed by the school’s International Student Program office. Host families receive a monthly stipend during the school year. They are responsible for providing for the needs of the student, including meals and transportation. Students will return to their home countries for the summer.
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. Host families are chosen after an application, background screen, and an in-person home visit are completed and reviewed by the International Student Program office.
If you would like to take advantage of this unique opportunity to make a difference in a young person’s life, complete the required form on the right side of this page so we can contact you with more information.
