Where will students live?
All students admitted into the AACS International Student Program will live with a Christian host family who are either parents of a current or former student of the school or who are friends of the school. All host families will have been screened and approved by AACS. International students may not make their own living arrangements. Students will live with their host family for a period beginning two weeks prior to the opening of the school year and ending one week after the last day of school for the year. Many students choose to return home during Christmas vacation. AACS will work with the student to facilitate international travel for that period.
A hosting fee is included in the international tuition. This covers room and board, transportation of the student to and from school, and inclusion of the student in everyday activities of the family. The student is responsible for long-distance telephone service, internet (other than that provided by the host family), clothing, cosmetics and toiletries, medical care, special foods, tutoring, standardized testing fees, and special travel undertaken with the host family.
