Homestay Program

The Mid-Pacific Institute Homestay Program connects host families with students from neighbor islands, the mainland, and other countries. Students who are in the seventh grade or higher are eligible to apply for the Homestay Program.

Host parents will provide guardianship, room, meals, and transportation to and from school, as well as include homestay students in family activities. The Homestay Program will host informal activities with the goal of encouraging students and staff to cultivate lifelong friendships and will arrange for social events where students can share their culture with others.
