International Homestay Program
At Tacoma Baptist, international students live with English-speaking, Christian families while attending our school. The cost of the homestay program is included in the international student tuition.
Our Homestay Program offers distinct benefits to students:
- Living with an American family aids in language development and proficiency
- Host families provide intentional emotional and social support
- Students become a part of the family, helping them to feel welcome, valued, and safe
- Host families help students to learn the nuances of American culture
- Homestays offer a rich learning environment for our students while providing support, and encouragement in a caring and safe environment
All Homestay families are carefully screened and paired with students by our Director of International Programs, Jean Jackson. We provide ongoing support and oversight to our students and homestay families throughout the year.
