ntroducing your family to a new culture and providing opportunity to foreign youth are just two of the many reasons to host an international student. Recently, Bishop Diego High School partnered with gphomestay, a nationwide organization that matches students from other countries with U.S. host families and is now looking for four places for four students who will attend the 2015 spring quarter at Bishop Diego. There are some requirements, such as providing three meals a day, transportation to and from school, and a private bedroom for the exchange student. Gphomestay, which works with nearly 200 schools throughout the United States, supports its host families by setting up organization and training, monthly stipends, on-call support, and live phone translation, among other services. Interested families can find out more by calling (781) 996-0429 or visiting gphomestay.com.
