Homestay Accommodation


Homestay Accommodation

 

To get the most out of experiencing New Zealand life, ACG recommends homestay accommodation. ACG students under the age of 18 are required to live with an ACG homestay family, a parent or a designated caregiver.

Accommodation arrangements for students under 18 years of age must meet ACG’s approval.

Each homestay family is visited, interviewed and the home inspected before any student placement is made. Homestays must sign a contract that details specific rules and standards. In addition, ACG homestay providers must undergo a vetting procedure by the New Zealand Police. ACG provides training and ongoing support for its approved homestays.

All students under the age of 18 are visited in their accommodation a minimum of three times per year by a friendly ACG assessor.

All payments are made directly to the homestay provider from the ACG Charitable Trust.

 The benefits of homestay are:

  • A homestay offers a clean, safe and welcoming environment for students to come home to each day.
  • A homestay provides guidance and support to students outside of school time.
  • A homestay provides opportunity for English practice.  This is an excellent way to increase speaking and listening skills.
  • A homestay includes most meals. Students don't need to spend time shopping and cooking.
  • A homestay includes laundry, electricity, heating, water and local phone calls.

ACG students can choose to stay at ACG's selected homestay accommodation:

  • ACG Homestay includes a single room with a bed, desk, lighting and adequate heating. Meals include breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday, and breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
  • The travel time between ACG Homestay and school is approximately 15 to 45 minutes each way by public bus or train.
  • Each homestay family normally accommodates up to three international students of different nationalities at a time.
