Student Life Department
The Student Life Department oversees all aspects of our students’ educational journey abroad including academic and homestay management. Student Life Coordinators place international students with loving host families that will support them throughout their educational career in the United States.
Believing that student success begins at home with a supportive family, we provide students with an authentic, full-immersion American homestay experience in a caring and safe neighborhood.
The Student Life program includes off-campus and homestay management, guardian services, and 24/7 daily and emergency support services (student illness, arrival and departure services, summer placement, etc.).
Ivy Bridge Group is a member of the CSIET network and follows U.S. Department of State guidelines and policies in selecting homestay families. All host families are certified through cultural training programs, yearly background checks, and in-home visits.
Accommodations provided by the homestay include: a private room in a home near their school, meals, Internet access, periodic sponsored extracurricular activities and events, and transportation arrangements to and from school.
