We welcome our International Students into the Heritage family. Our desire is that our international students feel welcomed into a caring and Christ-centered environment and take part in school activities. Heritage offers a safe community where a Biblical worldview is the foundation of the school culture, philosophy, and mission. Students will live with Christian host families, will learn about our faith, attend weekly chapel services in school, and attend church with their host family.
Become A Host Family: Being a host family brings you as close to being a global missionary as you can be without leaving your home! As a host family, you will be one of the early, friendly faces our international students will meet. Involving your international student in daily life and conversation will help them to develop their English skills and allow them to discover what it is like to be part of an American family. A hosting fee is included in the international tuition. This covers room and board, transportation of the student to an from school, and inclusion of the the student in everyday activities of the family. The student is responsible for long-distance telephone service, internet (other than that provided by the host family), clothing, cosmetics and toiletries, medical care, special foods, tutoring, standardized testing fees, and special travel undertaken with the host family.
Communication with the student’s family and their host family will take place on a monthly basis to ensure that the living arrangements are going smoothly. Many students choose to return home during Christmas vacation and those arrangements are the responsibility of the natural family.
