Enhance Your Educational and American Experience
Only twenty minutes from the Pacific Coast and an hour from the Los Angeles City Center, life in Southern California is sunny, healthy, warm, and exciting. Fairmont Homestay Program’s large network of American families offers students a warm and supportive environment for studying diligently and enjoying all which California has to offer. Living with local Fairmont Homestay families allows students to enjoy complete immersion in the English language, daily customs, and holidays of American families. Our students’ safety and comfort is our number one priority.
All Fairmont Homestay host families undergo a rigorous application process that includes home visits, criminal background checks, reference checks, and yearly training sessions. We make every attempt to place students with families who best fit each student’s lifestyle. Not only does living with an American family allow students the opportunity to practice English more frequently, it also allows them to gain unique insight into the American way of life.We respect the culture of every student who joins us and our host families do the same.
We also expect students to respect the family environment, joining the family at meal times and keeping to the rules of the house. Our host families treat students like their own children. Transportation to school is provided either by Fairmont’s private, school bus or by the host family.
