Homestay Program

Homestay is a wonderful opportunity for international students to engage in American culture and learn English directly from an English-speaking family.  While attending Erskine Academy, international students will live in the home of a local family.  By taking part in the daily activities of American life, a student gains special insight into the host country’s society through experiencing traditional routines, customs, and values.


Homestay parents commit to looking after an international student as if they were their own child. Doing so not only requires a commitment of time and energy but also a financial one. To offset the expenses incurred by a host family, Erskine Academy provides an $800 monthly stipend.
