The Delta School District wishes to thank you for your interest in hosting an international student. We value and respect the contribution made by families in our community who host international students and are pleased to be able to offer an excellent program to our international students.

Homestay is a wonderful opportunity to share our culture and learn about other cultures at the same time. Students come to Delta from a variety of countries in Asia, Europe, Central and South America.
