An important part of the International Student Program at Suncoast Christian College is the experience of living with an Australian family.

Providing our overseas students with a safe, supportive and nurturing home environment during their enrolment is of greatest importance to us at Suncoast Christian College.

The Homestay experience not only provides the student with a family environment but immerses them in the Australian culture and reinforces the English language lessons studied at the College. Experience has shown that students who are immersed in the English language by living with an English speaking family progress faster with their English language skills.

Suncoast works together with our Homestay families to ensure a successful experience for both the student and the family.
