  • Student Homes

    Students have the opportunity to stay in student homes with caring, qualified house parents. House parents provide assistance and oversight to ensure good study habits and positive socialization. Students staying in the student homes will also have organized activities available after school and on weekends to ensure cultural experience, as well as structured free time during the week.
  • Home-stays

    WLHS also arranges home-stays in very special circumstances for a limited number of students, or in the event student homes are at capacity. An additional fee of $5,000 is added to the total cost of tuition and fees if a student requests and is placed in a host family.
