St.John’s Academy works with JW Homestay. Please complete the Homestay Application Form (see attached) and submit it to the school with the required homestay fees. Applications will be processed after payments are received by the school. The homestay placement fee is non-refundable. The first month of the homestay fee will be paid to St. John’s Academy. Additional months of homestay will be paid directly to the host family.
It will take 2 to 3 weeks to find a suitable host family based on the choices and preferences you made on the Application Form. Please note, any special requests can be noted in the application form in advance, but we cannot guarantee as it depends on the host family.
Students will receive a profile of their host family, with contact information. Airport picks up instructions will be attached if it was required at application time.
If airport pickup service is needed, please let the school know your arrival details including arrival date, arrival time, flight number, and phone number. The host family will meet you at the airport, holding a sign with your name. In addition, the host family would like to know if anyone will accompany you to Vancouver. If yes, please let the school know if airport pickup is needed for that person in advance.
