International Student At Xavier Needs Host Family Urgently

From Dianna Shek, director of Uni-Ed, an international student exchange program.
We are urgently seeking a local American family who would be interested in hosting a male Chinese student Ryan who will be attending 11th grade at Xavier High School (181 Randolph Road, Middletown, Connecticut). He is 17 years old, 6 feet tall and plays basketball and volleyball.

He finished his first year as a 10th grade student at Xavier High School and really likes the school. His former agency placed him with a host family who has two big dogs knowing that Ryan Ji is allergic to dogs and cats hair. Considering Ryan is arriving U.S. on August 27th. We have very limited time to help him find another host family.

FYI, some basic responsibilities as a host family include the following:
  1. Transportation to and back from school by car or by school bus
  2. Three meals a day
  3. A bedroom and a single or shared bathroom with internet connection
  4. Treat the student the same as your own child

 Host family will be compensated with a monthly stipend depending on housing and transportation situation. Please ask any interested host families to fill out the attached application form and send it back to and I will get back to him/her as soon as possible. We will then schedule a phone conversation and home visit. A host family agreement will need to be signed before we share student contact information.

Contact Dianna Shek for the host family application form, Ryan’s photo and Xavier school bus route.

The host family doesn’t have to live in Middletown and neighboring town works as well as long as the host family can drop him off at one of the school bus stops.
