Host Family Information
Become A Host Family
Open your door to a Rockford Lutheran School international student and bring the world to your doorstep.
Since 1980, Rockford Lutheran School has partnered in the International Student Program. A successful program relies on a number of strong participants. It has been observed that the visiting students are mature, versatile and have a genuine interest to live and learn in a new country. A host family will find this experience to be mutually beneficial. International students traditionally arrive in August and return to their country in June. Host families can accept one or two international students per school year.
The Host Family Will Provide:
- Nurturing and friendly environment

The Exchange Student Will Provide:
- Personal spending money
- Own tuition

- Medical Insurance
