Host Families

O’Neal Admissions and iEUSA would love to hear from families that might be interested in hosting an international O’Neal student. They are looking for families that are able to provide their international student with a welcoming and loving home. Families are asked to provide transportation to and from school as well as after-school activities. Additionally, as a host family, you will provide for other essentials at home. Students should have their own bedroom, but can certainly share a bathroom in the home. Host families are not required to have their own child at O’Neal. In exchange for opening your home for this wonderful experience, you will receive an amazing cultural awareness, a monthly stipend, and a mutually rewarding adventure.
