Host an International Student

Our homestay program gives Global Students a home away from home during their time here. If you are interested in serving international students as a host family, you're in the right place.

Host families open up their houses, but they also open up their lives to Global Students — and their own families end up being tremendously blessed.

Our host families are screened, trained, supported, and reimbursed by Lipscomb.  Families abroad can feel confident that their children are placed in nurturing families well connected to our school. As a host family, you'll receive ongoing support from us as we partner together. 

Ready to become a host family?
