Hopkinton High School needs host parents for its international student program. Next year will be the fourth year of the program. It has helped make our families, our school and Hopkinton more global and it funds extra high school monogramming, including the mandarin world language program.

Hosting is available to all adults with or without children living and/or working in Hopkinton. People host for a variety of reasons. Most want the cultural richness and human connection they give and receive by opening their homes and their lives to international teenagers.
