Caring Host Families

All EducationUSA January Academy students will be cared for by host parents. These host families/parents are carefully selected, screened, and extensively trained. They are there to ensure the health and safety of the students. Students eat meals with their host families and have the opportunity to learn about American life. If students have any questions about the life in Boulder, or if they face any challenges adjusting to life in the United States, the host families are there to help them in any way possible.

Student rooms are furnished with:

  • Bed
  • Dresser
