Hosting a Student


Central Okanagan Public Schools is an increasingly popular destination for students from all over world. As our program continues to grow, we value the local families who contribute to its success by hosting international students. Homestay is an important part of educational success for international students. It's also a wonderful opportunity to share our culture with others and learn about other cultures in return, since students join us from a number of countries in Asia, Europe, Central and South America. 
Since students come here to improve their English, they expect that English will be spoken in the home in order to provide an immersion environment.

Student Ages: Middle and Secondary (grades 7-12)
