International Students Host Families are needed

Host Families are needed for two international students who will be attending BCHS in the 2018-2019 school year.

Evan, already a member of the BCHS class of 2021, needs a new host family as the family that hosted him last year is moving. He had a great experience with us last year and made some friends at BCHS. Evan managed the golf team and will be helping the football team in the fall.

The second student, David, will join us in the fall when he transfers to BCHS from Seton Catholic in Richmond, Indiana. David is an aspiring engineer, and will also be a sophomore. He likes baseball and basketball, plays piano, and likes pets, especially dogs.

Bishop Chatard partners with an organization called FLAG (Foreign Links Around the Globe) whose programs are designed to positively impact world peace by bringing together people from different countries and cultures, and also provides support for the students and their host families throughout the academic year. Learn more about FLAG here.

The entire Bishop Chatard community benefits from the cultural diversity of enrolling international students, which wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful host families! Host families provide a bed, meals, transportation and a loving environment for their international students. Host families provide a bed, meals, transportation and a loving environment for their international student and receive $700 a month to cover the costs of hosting. The students are responsible for all tuition and school-related expenses.
