For the last decade, Indian River Charter High School has welcomed students from around the world to share in our creative learning environment. Since the program's inception, many Indian River County families have welcomed one or more students into their homes for a semester or a full school year. In fact, many families enjoy the experience so much, they decide to host again.
The experience is not only rewarding for our "host families", but also for our international students. Our international students enjoy our school and community so much, some return to Florida often to spend time with their American family.
Families that host a student have a fantastic support network and receive a monthly stipend to offset the cost of hosting.
If you are interested in hosting an international, please call or email Stephanie Burleson at (407) 404-3311 or stephanie.burleson@educatius.
