Host A Student...
Host families are the most important component of our homestay programs. Their warmth and generosity are what makes the homestay experience so meaningful & memorable for the students of different countries.
Becoming a host family is easy. All it requires is a desire to share your home and 2-3 weeks of your life with a foreign student. The commitment you make to host a foreign student can bring your family joy for years to come. When all is said, who knows, you may even end up traveling to visit your foreign student in their country! Read what people are saying.

Our goal at American Discovery is to create friendships between families of different countries. We hope these friendships will last a lifetime. We wish for every student who visits America to have a chance to experience the uniqueness of its culture & diversity of its people. This way each student can make their own American discovery. Since each student is also an ambassador of his or her country, we hope our American families will gain a greater love for Europe as well.
