Homestay Program

The Homestay Experience is one of exchange and learning, with the possibility of long-term international friendships. Sterling College works hard to provide successful homestay experiences for our students.

When you choose to stay with one of our homestay families, you can expect that:

  • Only English will be spoken in the home
  • You will be treated like a member of the family, with respect and courtesy
  • You will have your own separate bedroom, furnished with a comfortable bed, desk, desk light, chair and a chest of drawers
  • Your host family will help you find your way around Victoria , and to school
  • You will receive three meals a day, and snacks will be available in the home
  • You will have the ongoing support of the school and our Homestay Coordinator, if you have any questions or concerns from time to time


See our Pricing page for a breakdown of Homestay costs.
