Kew High School International Student Program


Have you ever considered being a homestay host?





Kew High School has successfully hosted international students over many years and is well respected for our high education standards and individual student care.


Providing a home environment and remunerated accommodation to an international student at Kew High School can give you many opportunities, including the chance to learn firsthand about other cultures and build global friendship networks.


Settling in, learning English and finishing VCE studies can be hard when an international student arrives in Australia. Having the support of another family and a connection to the local community can make all the difference. Through shared experiences, new ideas and interests, every homestay family makes a special and valued contribution.

Our school selects homestay families according to a clear set of criteria and the needs, preferences and expectations of individual students. The welfare responsibility for every international student rests with the school and the International Student Program team is here to guide and support you.
