Becoming a Host Family
The International Student Program at Bourgade Catholic High School is a unique opportunity for your family to open up your home and have a young international student enrich your family with the sharing of new ideas, perspectives, and culture. When you welcome an international student, you will receive a wonderful young man or young woman who soon becomes a member of your family. As a host family you have a unique opportunity to be ambassadors of our great nation and share with your international student the beauty of American culture in an intimate family setting. Your international student will share the beauty of the culture from which they come from and together you will build a lasting/lifelong relationship. International students present your children an exceptional opportunity to become global as the friendship they form with their international brother or sister helps build bridges in the global community.
International student programs are growing rapidly in Phoenix as well as in our country. Many international students are waiting for a wonderful family, like yours, to open their home and provide the opportunity for such students to reach out and learn about the world around them. Bourgade Catholic High School is currently screening families who are open and willing to welcome an international student into their home and family.
We invite families to welcome international students who want to study at Bourgade Catholic beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year. Families who meet our qualifications and host a student will receive a stipend to assist with the costs associated with adding an international brother or sister to the family. If you are interested in becoming a host family, please contact Mr. Javier Bravo in the International Student Office at Bourgade Catholic High School email@example.com or (602) 973-4000 ext. 134.
