Homestay Program

Students participating in the La Salle Homestay Program are housed with families of La Salle College Preparatory students, staff, or faculty families. The families provide a safe, caring environment for students entrusted to them. Students are well-supervised at school and at home to ensure their safety and well-being. We believe that this type of living arrangement is most beneficial to international students coming from different cultural and language backgrounds.

Through living with a host family, international students gain experience learning a new culture, enhance their language skills, make lasting relationships, and become members of a connected and cooperative global community. We believe homestay families provide unmatchable experiences to international students that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Please email Mr. M.J. Mao if you need homestay services, and he will help you connect with our carefully selected host families. For students who do not need homestay, proof of residence with an immediate family member (i.e. mother or father) must be provided.


La Salle College Preparatory was founded in 1956. Today, we are the only truly diverse and co-educational Catholic high school in Pasadena.
