Homestay Program



Our Mission is to provide an engaging and safe environment where students are able to exceed their English learning goals while experiencing Canadian and Island culture.


If you would like to stay with a homestay family, we will ask you to tell us a little about yourself, your needs, and your interests. You will do this when you complete your registration form. Our homestay coordinator will look at your information and match you with your homestay family.

We have many types of homestay families. Some homestay families consist of a mom, dad and children, but others may be a single person with or without children, or an elderly couple whose children no longer live at home. Also, our homestay coordinator visits and approves all of our homestay families before they can receive students.

Homestay Families

  • Homestay families drive students to and from SACLI
  • Homestay families adopt you as part of the family
