Consider Becoming a Host Family

If you are interested in embracing new customs and have a desire to make a difference in the life of an international student, consider being a host family.

Host Family Program for International Students

New Oasis International Education and Westminster Schools of Augusta work in partnership to provide nurturing and supportive host homes for our international students.

New Oasis places international students studying abroad into private high school education programs and assists them in their transition into American academics and culture. Our students become members of typical American families for a fully‐immersive experience. They are given a local coordinator who assists with day-to-day life and a bilingual academic counselor who assists with scheduling and academic success.

A host family needs to provide:

  • A separate bedroom with wireless internet
    (student may share a bathroom)
  • Transportation to and from school
  • Meals & Laundry facilities

In exchange for welcoming a student into your home you will receive:

  • A generous monthly stipend of $1,100 ($11,000 total for the 10-month agreement)
  • Ongoing support from New Oasis and Westminster Schools of Augusta
  • A rewarding experience!

Natural parents pay school fees and tuition, and provide additional spending money throughout the year. Students come prepared with a computer, phone, personal belongings, and health insurance. They will arrive approximately one week prior to the start of the fall semester and leave when the academic year is finished in June.  Students will arrive in January for the spring semester.

New Oasis students are academically driven and desire to excel in their studies. They have studied in international programs in their respective schools, and all students speak and read English. They have been carefully screened by New Oasis and are accepted by Westminster Schools of Augusta after going through the admissions process.
