Is your family ready for an experience of a lifetime? If yes, consider the opportunity of serving as a host family. Hosting is the sharing of cultures between an international student and your family: customs, friendships, traditions – it’s a growth and learning experience for all involved.
Central Catholic is in need of a couple host families. While some international students live with family, most international students rely on a host family. And for that reason, the LCSS offers LCSS host families of CC diploma-bound international students a reimbursement of $1,300/semester or $2,600/year to be applied to the family’s 2019-20 tuition and fees balance.
ADDITIONAL HOUSEHOLD STIPEND
In addition to host family reimbursement applied to tuition and fees, there typically is also a monthly stipend to help offset additional expenses. International students coming to CC through a foreign exchange program, such as FLAG, typically have a preset monthly stipend. For students coming to CC independently (not through an exchange program), a monthly stipend should be agreed upon between the student’s family and the host family. This stipend can be set-up to be paid by the student’s family directly to the host family, or it can be run through the LCSS Business Office (with a 1099 issued). The Admissions Office can help with recommended stipends.
WHO NEEDS A HOST?
We have one host family, and we are in need of 2 more! Jerry Xie CC/11, a student at CC for the past two years needs a host family, as does Jessica, CC/11 (cousin to Fr. Samuel Kalu). Won’t you consider this meaningful experience for not only your family, but for these students as well?
