Shorecrest has partnered with New Oasis International Education to help recruit and house international students at Shorecrest. New Oasis homestay is not about renting a room in an American house, it's about joining an American family. By saying "yes" to the experience, we can foster a global understanding.
Host Families Provide:
Desire to welcome and immerse an international student
Close proximity to New Oasis partner school
Three nutritious meals each day/available groceries
Wi-Fi Internet Access
A Flexible Schedule
A Private Bedroom for the student
Transportation to school, activities and airport
Is there a subsidy? Yes, $1100/month
How long is the contract? 10 months
When will students arrive? Generally, a week to 10 days before school starts.
Where are the students coming from? Mostly from China.
Will the students speak English? Ideally, yes, however keep in mind that improving their English and becoming cross-culturally competent is one of the major reasons for attending high school in the US.
What about family vacations? If you are open to allowing the student to travel with you that can be worked out on an individual basis. We will have respite care available as well.
