Niskayuna Central School District sponsors an International Student program to bring students from around the world into our high school and community. The International Student Program allows Niskayuna students to experience all the diversity of a truly international student population and provides Niskayuna families the opportunity to share their home life with student visitors for an entire school year.
In order to support the efforts of host families, the Niskayuna Central School District will provide interested families with a monthly stipend of $600. This stipend is intended to assist families in covering the expenses of hosting such as room, board and entertainment.
Host families must complete the following steps in order to take part in the International Student Program:
1. Complete the host family application
2. Sign the criminal background check authorization release (included in the link above)
3. Agree to and complete the host family orientation
4. Provide proper supervision to the international student
If you are interested in having a rewarding experience as a host family, please call (518) 382-2511, ext. 2170 for more information, or complete the host family application and return it to Mr. Edward Alston Sr., Niskayuna High School, 1626 Balltown Rd., Niskayuna, New York. 12309
