Local Families Needed to Host International Students Attending Charles Wright

Tacoma, Wash. – If your family enjoys exploring new cultures and meeting new people, then you would be a great host family for an international student attending Charles Wright Academy for the upcoming academic school year.

Hosting an international student is an amazing opportunity to share your home with a resilient exchange student who is eager to learn about American culture and family life. Charles Wright Academy is accepting applications for new host families for international students who will arrive in the fall. We’re looking for friendly people with a warm home life—and host families need not be enrolled at Charles Wright to host an international student.

Past host families tell us they benefited from the experience as much as the students. In particular, they enjoyed:

Sharing American culture

Learning about a new culture and language

Developing a lifelong friendship with an international student and his or her family

Receiving a stipend of $10,500 for the academic year

All host families must pass a background check. Those selected, will bring students into their homes for an academic year, providing them with daily meals, a bedroom, transportation to and from school, and access to a computer. The international student maintains health insurance and pays for all other personal expenses while in the U.S.

Listen to Charles Wright Academy’s International Student Coordinator Ann Vogel’s 2014 interview with KLAY 1180 AM Talk Radio’s Ty Ray about the many benefits of hosting international students enrolled at the Tacoma private school:

If your family is interested in hosting, contact Ann Vogel, international student coordinator at Charles Wright Academy, at 253-620-8356, or plan to attend an upcoming International Student Host Family Info Session.

    Hi, Ann—
    Lucy Curtis, a long-time mentioned to me about your school’s international student hosting program. I am very much interested in hosting international students for Charles Wright. How do I go about applying as such? We live about 5 mins or less from Charles Wright. Currently, we are hosting a Japanese student through TCC until the end of August. Hope to hear from you soon about this. Thank you!
