Host Families Wanted for September 2023!

Do you have a spare room? Are you interested in welcoming an International Claremont Secondary School student to your family?

Take a look at the SISP Homestay Brochure

The Saanich International Student Program (SISP) is looking for new Host Families to open their hearts and homes to International Students for the September 2023 start of the upcoming school year.

SISP has been welcoming International Students to the Saanich School District since 2001 and they are a wonderful addition to the community. Students are in Grades 9-12 and come to Saanich for 4 months, 5 months or a full school year of 10 months. For Claremont, host families who would be able to welcome boys are especially needed.

The SISP Homestay Team offers host families:

· an enriching and fun experience with their student(s)

· continuous support and a 24/7 emergency line

· a monthly honorarium of $1150 per student for expenses incurred, as of September 2023

Visit, phone 250-655-2720, or contact the Claremont Homestay Coordinator, Ms. Kristen Belusic at for more information or a no-commitment conversation.
