Information for High School USA Host Families and Schools

We greatly appreciate the efforts of our host families and schools that are currently hosting our students. We understand that these are challenging times, and we thank you for the time and energy you’ve given to our students. If you are a current host family and you can no longer host due to effects from COVID-19, please be sure to contact the CIEE Support Team at 1-800-448-9944. We will help arrange another host family or assist the student with returning home.

We believe that we will still welcome students for the 2020-2021 academic year. We would greatly appreciate it if you would consider hosting a student for next year. Our team of local coordinators will be reaching out to you, but you can always contact us directly if you wish to become a CIEE Host Family by learning more at
