World-Class Support for
Younger Students

StudentRoomStay Concierge (SRS Concierge) partners with education providers to increase the success of their local international student program and deliver a positive student experience.

We understand younger students require more attention and support, which is why we offer homestay solutions specially tailored to students under the age of 18. As part of the world’s most reputable global homestay alliance, our CSIET-approved high school homestay program has helped thousands of students and host families to establish and maintain connections which can last a lifetime.

Program Highlights

Ensuring students are safe, welcomed and happy is our priority. SRS Concierge guarantees:

  • SAFE, CERTIFIED HOSTS: Hosts selected to care for high school students must commit to extra responsibilities as well as going through our rigorous certification process that includes comprehensive training, criminal background checks, an in-home interview and house inspection.
  • A COMFORTABLE HOME: High school homestays include accommodation in a neighborhood close to campus with a private bedroom, study space, meals and internet access. Transportation and additional services for special needs and extracurricular activities are also available.
  • SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION: Whether traveling by bus or car, students will never have a problem getting to and from school each day.
  • LOCAL CULTURE: Host family members and their friends help students discover the America they know.
  • CUSTOMIZED OPTIONS: If our homestay program is missing something you need, just ask. We can customize a homestay package to suit your requirements.

A Trusted Partner in High School Homestay

The key objective for all SRS Concierge homestays is to provide a welcoming environment for students while encouraging a shared cultural experience for everyone involved.

Our standards-based homestay program focuses on helping students understand the culture and customs of the region in which they are studying.

Living in a properly-managed homestay with a local support network allows students to adapt to the American lifestyle more efficiently and settle in to their studies.

How it Works

Students live with a local host family – who has been vetted and approved by SRS Concierge – for 42 weeks.

Hosts offer guidance for students and assist in monitoring behavior, welfare and school attendance. Pre-departure orientation is provided by SRS Concierge and students also receive local orientation from their host. SRS Concierge and our hosts may assume a guardianship role for students, or a designated guardian can be assigned through our Parent Nominated Homestay program. In all instances SRS Concierge facilitates the host/student guardianship process, quality assures the host and manages the homestay to ensure the ongoing safety and well-being of the student.

Placements are monitored by a local coordinator, with additional 24/7 emergency assistance available to all SRS Concierge students.
