Host family placement

Once students choose to study in an Amerigo homestay program, they are often anxious to receive their host family placement. Here is what happens to ensure we make the best placements for our students and families.

In May, our staff focuses on concluding the current school year while also preparing for the next. We engage with current Host Families to determine who will continue hosting and recruit new families to join our community.

As the school year ends, 9th to 11th graders prepare for final assignments, and 12th graders look forward to graduation. This period involves emotional farewells between students and Host Families.

Hosts eagerly await information about their new students, and initial matching begins based on available data.

Information about Host Families, such as household members, pets, and preferences, is also considered. Our goal is to create excellent matches between Hosts and students.

Depending on arrival dates, placements may be communicated in July or August. Amerigo aims to notify students three weeks before their arrival.
