Host the Adventure of a Lifetime
The International School of Indiana offers high school students from around the world the opportunity for a world-class education in an American cultural setting. Students learn to speak perfect English, graduate with the internationally respected IB diploma, and make friendships that extend far beyond the high school years.
Many of our host families have students currently attending ISI. These families and their children benefit from a deep and personal connection to the language and culture of the exchange student. At the same time, the exchange student has the benefit of the host family’s experience with the school, its staff, and fellow students and families. On occasion, children of our host families have even spent time visiting the home countries and families of their exchange sibling.
Exchange students reside with host families during the school year, returning to their home families during the summer and over breaks if necessary or desired. ISI pays a hosting stipend to families to offset related costs.
Ideally, a student will remain with the same host family throughout their time at ISI, but the Admissions Office works with both exchange students and host families to ensure the most positive experience possible for all concerned.
