CB-VRSB International Student Program
Becoming a Host Parent
The CBVRSB is looking for warm and caring host families for International Students attending our school district.
Hosting an international student is an exciting adventure that enriches your family’s life and brings a world of new ideas and experiences right to your doorstep. Host Families are supported by a Homestay Coordinator and provided financial assistance is during the student’s stay to offset the finacial costs to one's family.
We have a number of different programs that bring these students to our province in particular the Nova Scotia International Student Program (NSISP) a joint ventured with the Department of Education and the seven school boards. Some students stay for as little as one month and others stay for the school year. You can determine the period of time you wish to host.
Host families are required for students who are in Grades 5 to 12. We also have the opportunity to host teachers from different countries as well as hosting short term groups who may come for a period of 4 or 6 weeks.
