The Homestay Program is designed for international students between the ages of 12 and 18 who wish to study English in Canada. The Vernon School District welcomes students from different countries to study in our schools. Students come to experience Canadian Culture and improve their English skills.
Having an international student in your home can be fun and rewarding. It takes time, patience and a willingness to share your life. There are many differences, both cultural and personal, among our students and homestay families. The real joy comes from encountering and learning from living with an international student.
