Roycemore School partners with several international agencies to provide the best opportunities and support to students from other countries who are looking for an excellent American school and cultural experience. The presence of these students has enriched our own school community in many different ways over the last few years, including organizing a fun and educational annual all-school Lunar New Year celebration!
Our newest partner is New Oasis International Education,which is committed to providing top-notch support to both the school and its international students in recruitment, homestay, and an overall incredible academic and social experience. New Oasis students come from various cities around China, and all have completed an international preparatory program, have a track record for excelling academically, and are eager to learn and experience American culture.
We are now actively searching for welcoming and supportive host families in our school community to open their hearts and homes to the Chinese students who seek to attend Roycemore beginning second semster 2018. Hosting an international student is a fantastic way to expand your family’s life to become global citizens, increasing awareness, empathy, and an open mind. Plus, there’s the bonus of exciting holidays, traditions, and new food!
While providing a comfortable and cultural-enriching environment is key to a successful homestay experience, our host families will need to fulfill several specific needs, providing: transportation to and from school, three nutritious meals each day, a separate bedroom (bathrooms may be shared) and parental supervision and guidance of this young adult.
In exchange for opening up your home, you’ll enjoy an amazing cross-cultural experience and have the opportunity to bond with a student who will become a part of your family. Your Chinese student will also receive ongoing academic and social support from the highly-skilled and trained staff at New Oasis International Education. Their staff’s role extends to your family and provides a local, on-the-ground coordinator to navigate the process and support every step of the way through check-ins, home visits, and even coordinating activities for students and families! Lastly, you will receive a monthly stipend of $1,100 from New Oasis.
If you are interested or even considering hosting for the Spring 2018 semester, please don’t hesitate to connect ASAP with our local New Oasis Program Manager Audra Murray via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-380-3531.
