Homestay Program

Welcome an International Exchange Student Into Your Home

Each year, international exchange students from over 20 countries come to the U.S. to attend Lake Mary Preparatory School and live with host families in our local community. By hosting an exchange student in your home, you will start seeing the world from a new perspective and create an unforgettable experience for your entire family.

Why Host an International Exchange Student?

Hosting an exchange student means more than providing a bed and meals. As an LMP Host Family, you’ll welcome a new member into your home, share your everyday lives, and grow as you get to know each other and share your cultural perspectives. You’ll be surprised at how much you learn about yourself, your family, and community. Have a life-changing experience in your own home – become a host family!

And, don’t worry – we’re always here to help, 24/7. For questions, concerns, or for host family placement information, please contact our Admissions Office at 407-805-0095 or via email at

Being a host family has been an incredible experience for my family. We have learned new languages, games and customs that we otherwise wouldn't have. It's opened our eyes to the world!
