It's the season of giving, and what better way to spread the message of love and thankfulness than by welcoming an international high school student into your home! AYA is currently accepting host family applications for the 2017/18 academic year.

Choosing a student now has many benefits:

  • Start building a relationship with your student early on
  • Get students enrolled in school before slots fill up
  • Have something to look forward to all year!

Contact our office today to learn more about students arriving next fall.

Can't wait until next year? Log in to view available students arriving this August for our fall semester!
