Staying with a local family is a great way to learn about American culture while you enjoy home comforts.
People of many different ethnicities live in the Bay Area, and our host families reflect this diversity. Host families can include single people, couples, single-parent families, and families with multiple generations living in one home.
Many of our host families are of Filipino descent, and their family-oriented culture means that they treat the students they host as part of their own family. All host families are English speaking.
Most homes are single family or 2 family homes. The latter is usually two floors with one home on one floor and one on the other. Students are placed in a single or twin room.
Each room is furnished with a bed, desk, dresser and closet. Some rooms have TVs and other amenities. It is important that rooms and living areas are kept neat and tidy. Students also have access to a shared bathroom. Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family.
Most families are located in the residential areas outside of the city of San Francisco, such as Daly City, South San Francisco and Pacifica.
Distance to school via public transportation is 45-60 minutes.
