Aberdeen Hall Family Boarding

Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School facilitates a Family Boarding (homestay) Program partnering with local families who are carefully selected, open minded, and appreciative of other cultures. Most importantly, we are  committed to our host families providing international students with a 'home away from home'.

We believe that a safe and welcoming English speaking home environment is integral to a student’s positive Canadian experience and require international students to live with an Aberdeen Hall host family.

All host families have successfully completed the school’s comprehensive screening process and adhere to provincial Homestay Guidelines. 

Being a part of Aberdeen Hall’s Family Boarding Program is an enriching experience and a wonderful opportunity to fully immerse into Canadian culture, create lifelong friendships, and improve English language skills.
