At Elgin Academy, we’re personally committed to knowing and inspiring every child who finds a second home on our campus. The best way to see what taking learning personally could mean for your child is to come see us in person.

Seeking International Host Families

We invite you to open your heart and home to an international student from China or South Korea. We are currently in need of host families for four male international students. The boys will be Upper School students for the 2017 - 2018 school year (one freshman, two sophomores, one junior). There is a monthly stipend of $856.00. Host families provide room and board and a supportive environment in which the student can learn and thrive.

Attached you will find testimonials from some of our international students and host families. Host parents are available upon request to answer any questions you might have about hosting a student.

We hope you will consider filling this very important need.

About Elgin Academy
About Elgin Academy

Why taking learning personally matters to your child.

As an intentionally small school, understanding the feel of Elgin Academy—our campus and our classrooms, yes, but primarily our people and our pedagogy—is vastly important to you as a prospective family.

Here, taking learning personally is more than a credo—it defines our promise to each and every student and family who calls EA home.

Our classes remain small to ensure we know, listen, and respond to the voice of every child. Instead of finding cracks to fall through, our students cement relationships that build character, bravery, discipline, and trust over their time here.
