Become a Host Family
International student programs are growing rapidly in our country. Many international students are waiting for caring families like yours, to open your home and provide an opportunity for such to students learn about the world around them. The Jackson Prep International Program (JPIP) is a unique opportunity for your family to open up your home and have a young international student enrich your family with the sharing of new ideas, perspectives, and culture. International students present your children with an exceptional opportunity to become globally conscious as they form a friendship with their international brother or sister and help build bridges in the worldwide community.
Jackson Preparatory School is seeking caring families who are interested in providing a safe and nurturing home for international students. These host families are chosen only after background checks, reference checks, and personal interviews are completed and reviewed. Each member of the host family will also receive the Safe Environment Training program.
When welcoming international students into their homes, host families have the chance to establish a lifelong friendship while making a difference in a student's life.
