Topton believes the host family is an essential component of a student’s cultural understand and language acquisition in a new country. Our affiliated host families are typically families with students of their own or teachers. These families consider international students as part of their family and care about their acclimation and growth.
Topton Host is our large and effective homestay network that pairs the interests of students with host families. Students, host families and schools have access to a local residential advisor 24 hours a day in the event there is an emergency. Topton Host also provides monthly residential reports and assessments to the native family of students, demonstrating their growth and acclimation. Academic advisors provide counseling every two weeks for students, and an academic progress report is written once a month.
Utilizing our international partners, Topton Host is able to deliver first-hand updates about students to their native families due to the help of home coordinators. Translation assistance is also offered to more effectively communicate between host families, native families and schools. Topton Host strives to make the international experience a positive and memorable one for not only students, but host families as well.
