“The Sagemont School began working with Homestay Florida in 2007 to establish international student school and camp programs. The school program grew from 1 student to 46 students in the 2016-17 school year. Homestay Florida recruited and vetted host families as well as directly recruiting international students for The Sagemont School. They are wonderful to work with and the program has been an incredible addition to the school’s program offerings.”

“Homestay Florida does a fantastic job of pairing these students to the best fitting host families. They provide loads of information to the host families and students alike, to ensure their success both personally and educationally. The lines of communication are always open, and they are always there to give guiding directions. Our working relationship has been one of deep gratification and joy.”

“We have truly enjoyed working with Homestay Florida. Beth and Stephen are very professional and competent. Any issue that comes up, they do what it takes to resolve it sensitively and quickly. We have a large home on 2.5 acres and have hosted approximately 24 students from China, France, Spain, and Italy. We are still in contact with many of our students that are going to university in the United States, as well as those who are back in their home countries.”

“We’ve had the pleasure of hosting 9 students from China, Brazil, Japan, and Turkey. Working and interacting with the McMahons was a very positive and uplifting experience for us. They were extremely professional, available at a moment’s notice, had all the answers, and helped us get “into the groove” of working with children of so many different cultures.”
