International students who attend Santa Margarita Catholic High School must live with either a natural parent or a pre-approved Homestay.
Students Who Need Homestay
For your Homestay Services, SMCHS international students must use the services of JR International Enterprise Inc. (dba JR Education Group).
JR Education offers a network of homestay families in Orange County dedicated to providing a loving family environment for the student. Our homestay program gives each student the individualized attention for all family needs, creating a perfect atmosphere for the students to have a nurturing and supportive relationship with their homestay and school.
Students and their parents can have peace of mind as each participating host family must go through a personal interview and home inspection process to ensure the safety of the student.
In addition, homestay families provide rich cultural experiences, ones that the students will cherish for the rest of their lives.
Students Who DO NOT Need Homestay
Students who do not need homestay must have proof of residence with their natural parent submitted to the International Admissions Office prior to the first day of school.
Prospective Host Families
Become a homestay family to provide a wonderful experience that enriches the lives of students. Help bridge the gap between two (or more) countries with a cultural exchange by opening your heart and home to an international student.
