The CIEE USA High School program sponsors international high school students from more than 55 nationalities to attend school and live with American host families each year. As a CIEE host family, you will give a young exchange student the opportunity to discover America

At CIEE, we believe that selecting a compatible student for your family isn’t as simple as flipping through the pages of an online “catalog” of student profiles. Our personalized approach ensures that you are placed with an international student who not only shares your interests, but whose personality complements your family dynamic.

CIEE Local Coordinators across the United States believe that international exchange is a life changing experience for young people and their community, and a wonderful way to bring people from different countries together.

Local Coordinator Roseanna Ondra is happy to work with you, finding an international student that works well with your family situation.

Contact Roseanna to team up with you every step of the way, from placement and paper work, to maintaining contact throughout the year.

“I’ve hosted eight students in all so far, over the years, and each one is special to me, not unlike a niece, nephew, or godchild. I remain in contact with all of my students, all over the world, and anticipate the day I visit them in their home countries!”-Roseanna Ondra

“Our experience as a host home for a Chinese exchange student was rewarding. Not only did our family learn about the Chinese culture, but we shared many American foods and introduced him to new activities such as sledding and shoveling the Michigan snow.” –Jackie and Jon Lindner

CIEE-We change lives. Our alumni change the world.
