International Students


Mrs. Eder, mother of Kim Eder—Germany

I would like to personally thank Saint Edward's and the Host Family for being so nice and welcoming to our daughter. It was the perfect school and the perfect Host Family for her.
Students are warmly welcomed into the campus community and into the homes of our host families. Undeniably, one of the most integral components of student success and happiness at school is the homestay experience. There is no better way to learn a new language and culture than to fully immerse oneself within it, and the homestay plays an invaluable role in that development. Therefore, Saint Edward’s School places top priority on the background screening process and homestay selection.
  • Careful screening process that includes: fingerprinting, a thorough background check, drug screening and homesite visit.
  • Student applications and Host Family Questionnaires help to align students with potential host families based on like-minded interests or hobbies, family dynamics and background, possible shared experiences, likes and/or dislikes.
  • Dedicated full-time International Program Coordinator on call 24/7 during school year for emergencies and overall student support.
  • In addition to one-to-one “routine check-ins” with the International Program Coordinator, students are welcome to schedule a time to meet with the coordinator to discuss any possible concerns they may have at school, or within the homestay.

Michele Sternberg—Saint Edward’s School Host Mom

Our Host Daughter was such an amazing influence on our boys, that not only did we host her for the two years she was at Saint Edward’s, but she returned back to our home from college to spend Christmas with us!
