Sandy Spring Friends School Boarding - #YouAreWelcomeHere

Host Family Comfort Sandy Spring Friends School offers host family living opportunities for international students while they are students at SSFS to provide an immersion experience into American home life. This enables international students to be a part of a family while they study abroad and creates cross- cultural connections between American and international families. Students in the SSFS Host Family Program live, eat, work, and spend free time with the American family and are considered a respected and valued member of the home. This immersive, American experience dramatically improves their English-speaking skills, and provides international students an enjoyable family experience that is different from their own.

SSFS host families are well known in our community and care for international students as they would care for their own children.
