DLGA offers traditional host‐family “homestay” boarding as one of the residential options for international students. The experience of living with an American family provides a healthy learning environment, where students enjoy enhanced cultural integration, accelerated English learning, and personalized care. Individual family attention provides the student with social and emotional support and students enjoy a rich cultural experience by integrating into an actual American family.
Host families provide students with room and board, all meals, and transportation. Students also receive a cafeteria meal plan to cover lunches on school days. Host families are only chosen after background checks, reference checks, and personal interviews are completed and reviewed. Many host families are teachers, support staff, and parents from Boca Prep International School.
