HomeStay Program

One of the unique features of Wheaton Academy boarding is the HomeStay program. Instead of an impersonal dorm setting, we believe international students living with American families constantly provides a much better learning environment and provides more focused social and emotional support. Host families are chosen after background checks, reference checks, and personal interviews. Orientation and ongoing support is provided to host families as well.

Kairos Community

The name Kairos comes from the Greek word for “time”. At Kairos, we set aside time each week to come together as an international community to learn what it means to live in community. We emphasize the importance of understanding and respecting cultural differences, being self-aware, being an encouragement to others, and being thankful in all things. During Kairos we share a meal together, study together, go on regular outings, and enjoy activities. We also put on an annual show to showcase our gifts and talents. Being a part of Kairos is special because it allows us to celebrate all the things that make us unique.
