Looking for Host Families

PAX is Searching for Host Families for GMUHS Foreign Exchange Students

Hoping to bring back a valuable program to the Green Mountain community, PAX, the Program of Academic Exchange, is looking for families to host students for the 2015-16 academic school year.  These young adventurers will arrive at the end of August, from one of over 80 countries!  They hope to spend a full academic year here; becoming a member of a family, sharing cultures, improving their English, and creating lifelong memories with their new communities.
What is PAX looking for in a host family?  We are looking for families that can host a student for a whole or half academic year.  A host family should be ready to share their lives with a PAX student as if this child were their own son or daughter.  This means providing the student with a bed and quiet place to study, three quality meals a day, transportation to and from school activities and the love and support a teenager will need while adapting to life in the U.S. 

If you would like to host a student for the upcoming year, or have some questions, please give Shannon Parker in guidance a call at 802-875-2146.
