What requirements does SRS hold for its hosts?

At SRS, we hold our hosts to the highest standards.

Our hosts are rigorously screened including a criminal background check and they are matched carefully with each student. Hosts are expected to welcome a student warmly into their home and help them become familiar with the American lifestyle so they are successful during their time in our program. SRS host families must speak English and are expected to provide students with

  • a clean, comfortable private bedroom with place to study
  • a choice of meal plans
  • inclusion in host activities based on student interest
  • internet access (there may be a charge depending on the household)
  • information on how to access public transportation
