Home Stay Information and Fees

If requested, Heritage Christian School will make arrangements for your child to live with a Christian Canadian Host Family. We make every effort to accommodate your request and match your child with children of similar ages. The family will provide three meals per day, transportation to and from school (high school students may choose to take the city bus), and give them support needed to live here in Kelowna. Students will become proficient in English and Canadian culture by choosing to live in a Homestay situation.

Homestay Fees: The monthly and daily Homestay fees for Middle/High School students are $850/ month ($30/day) and for Elementary School students, they are $900/month ($32/day). The fees are paid at the beginning of the year and held in trust by the school for monthly disbursement to the homestay family. If your child does not attend for the whole term, as stated in your application, there must be at least one month notice given to the school. If notification of withdrawal is less than one month, the Homestay family will receive the fees for the current month and one more month in lieu of proper notification.

Personal
We believe that children can place their trust in Christ as their personal Savior and we teach this at HCS. It is important for us to know if your child has done so. When parents and children both support the elements of faith and practice as we believe and teach within the HCS community, the educational experience is much more satisfying. Please comment on your child’s spiritual condition and response to spiritual teaching.
