HOME STAY LIVING
Johnson Academy will choose families that best match students’ requests.
At Johnson Academy Canada, students will have the option to live with a Canadian host family located close to the school. These host families will offer students a family like accommodation. The host families are carefully selected to ensure our student gets a good experience with a Canadian family. Homestay families are usually less than 30 minutes away from the school. Students will get the added benefit to practice English and experience different cultures.
All families went through multiple screening processes and are in long-term cooperation with King's Academy. These local families are safe, comfortable, reliable and experienced in looking after international students. They are also loving and committed. They are always in touch with school and supportive in students’ integration into local culture.
Homestay accommodation offers you the opportunity to learn about Canadian culture and its customs and values in a secure and friendly environment. By living with a Canadian family you will improve your English and get a thorough understanding of Canadian life. Moreover, your host family is a priceless source of information about the new environment. Homestay is suitable for stays ranging from a few weeks to many months and it is competitively priced compared with other accommodation options.
Homestay in a native-speaking household gives international students a more protected environment, a quicker way to learn about North American culture, and an out-of-school method to improve their English communication skills.
