International Student Program Homestay

We believe that a quality international program is one that places our international students in the homes of Serra families, where the young men will have the support and warmth that only a family environment can provide.

The international student and the Serra family will embark on an unparalleled, enriching experience–one that will create relationships that will last a lifetime. Host families will encourage the continued use of English skills, provide academic and social guidance, and generally support the student as he is immersed into the American culture. International students will be provided with all meals and a bedroom in the family home. The host family will receive an annual stipend, which is covered in the cost of tuition.
