The International Student Program is still in need of two more host families for the 2019-20 school year. A recent article in the Chestnut Hill Local describes how the homestay program enriches both the GFS community and the host families. One previous host family shared, "Hosting [an international student] was a wonderful and rewarding experience for our family. Having two younger children at home, she quickly became a big sister our children grew to love. We thoroughly enjoyed our time as a homestay family for the International Student Program.” Every homestay family receives a monthly stipend for room and board.
