If your child is accepted and enrolls with GFS, our International Student Program will provide a homestay for your child with a family that is well-known to our community. Please note that no independent or third-party (agency) homestays are permitted.
The cost of the GFS International Student Program (ISP) is $27,500 USD and will include a ten-month homestay, a week-long new student orientation prior to the start of school, private English tutoring, college counseling, international medical insurance and a student meal plan. Parents will receive bimonthly progress reports from the ISP staff.
During ISP New Student Orientation Week, students will set up a debit account at Wells Fargo Bank with the bank representative on campus. Parents will be given the wiring information to fund this debit account, to which their children will have access 24/7. The initial deposit is recommended at $2,500 USD to be replenished by the parents as needed.
The GFS tuition and fees, and the International Student Program cost ($27,500 USD) will be due on or before May 1, 2019 for the 2019-20 school year. The ISP homestay deposit ($12,500 USD) is due on April 1, 2019 and is required to guarantee your child's place in the upcoming school year. Contracts and permission forms will be sent to parents on or before June 1, 2019.
