The Homestay Family is an important part of the International Education experience for international students.
Students are coming to Canada to learn English, or in some cases to improve, their English, to prepare for entrance into a Canadian university, and to experience the North American culture and family life.
The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board's International Education program is seeking homestays in the Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School area in Kingston. Students will arrive at the end of August and stay until the end of June.
If you are interested in learning more or becoming a homestay parent, please contact Madeleine O'Connor at 613-848-9987 or by email at
