Become an International Student Host Family

Host families are needed each school year for international students who attend Billings Central Catholic High School. Host families provide the student with room and board and transportation to and from school and school-related activities. Often international students come to the United States for several years, earning a diploma at an American high school. Many of these students will continue on to an American university for college.

Many international exchange students come to Billings Central Catholic High School for only a semester or a one year in order to experience American high school culture and the American way of life, but they do not intend to study in the United States for longer than a year.

For families hosting either type of international student, tuition grants for currently enrolled BCS students are offered.

Hosting an international student can be an incredible experience for both the international student and the host family. Both the host family and the international student share their own culture, while also learning a new culture. Many host family experiences result in a lifelong relationship with the student, meeting the student’s family, and traveling to the student’s home country.
