Can you open your heart and home to an international student attending McDonell High School next year? Our partner, Student Management Group, is currently looking for host families for students arriving in August.
Host families represent the diversity of American culture. They are of varied backgrounds and include working parents, couples without children, single parents, adoptive parents, empty nesters, etc. that are over 25 years of age. The most important characteristic of a SMG host family is the willingness to welcome a student from another country into your family and provide a safe, comfortable environment throughout their stay in the U.S.
SMG students are screened for social, emotional, and academic maturity. They speak English, and have their own health insurance and spending money. We work with a family to pick a student that matches their interests and lifestyle. A Local Coordinator maintains contact with the student and family to ensure success and work through any adjustment issues.
Host families provide three meals a day, complete an online application, pass criminal background checks, are English-speaking and treat the student as a member of the family. Our families receive a stipend to offset the expense of hosting.
For more information, please contact Anita Wahl at 715.271.6098 or EMAIL.
Thank you to our current MACS families, our biggest cheerleaders, for referring new families to MACS! Current MACS families, you can earn 10% off your student's tuition for one year by referring a new kindergarten family to our schools. The new family will receive 10% off for three years.
We are excited to have our 33nd Annual Spirit of the Macks on October 7, 2023.
