Homestay is a great accommodation option for some students. It is economically priced, and it also gives you the chance to practice your English skills and experience Hawaiian lifestyle.

All of our homestay families have been visited by our staff to ensure that you will have the best homestay experience possible.

Homestay Includes

  • a private room (semi-private possible for children)
  • a self-serve breakfast and a hot dinner each day (students aged 12-17 also receive a packed lunch)
  • placement in a reliable family that has been carefully screened by the school
  • transportation to school available for students aged 12-17 (mandatory for students 12-13)

Although we understand that most students want to be placed as close as possible to the school, most of our homestay families are located in the suburban areas surrounding Honolulu. Most families live 45-60 minutes by bus from the school.

If being close to the school or nightlife is important to you, we recommend that you explore our accommodation options in or near Waikiki.
