Many students at Spring
International prefer to stay
with American families so that
they can practice their English
and learn more about American
school's Housing Coordinator
maintains a file of host
families in the area who are
interested in hosting
international students. Homestay
placements are made about one
month before the students'
arrival. Placements are
completed once we verify that
the student has received the
visa and intends to start
classes as scheduled.
Living with an American family gives you the chance to practice English every day and the chance to learn about American culture directly. Host families are interested in the students' own cultures and want to help you enjoy your stay in America. For this reason, we place individual students in a home. Students who are coming with family members will need to arrange their own housing or request separate homestays.
In the homestay, students have their own room with a place to study. In addition, they have use of the family laundry and other facilities. Host families provide breakast and dinner. Students buy their own lunch. There are options on places to eat near each center.
Please see more information below for each Colorado center.
Denver: For this center, located in the heart of downtown Denver, families live in the residential neighborhoods of Denver or its suburbs. Transportation into the city center is typically by bus and/or light rail trains. Students should expect a commute of 30-50 minutes.
Littleton: Most families are located within an easy bus ride to the school.
COSTS: The Homestay Fee for our Colorado schools is $800 per month.
Do you want to live with an American family in Colorado? After you complete your application for Spring (on the APPLY page), you can complete a Homestay Application - either online or by mail, fax, or email.
Some students live in apartments located near the school. The Housing Coordinator may be able to provide some information to help you find an appropriate apartment in the area, but locating an apartment that meets an individual's needs and signing the lease is the student's responsibility. Students should begin to search for an apartment before they arrive. If you plan to find an apartment, you should expect to spend about a week or more in a hotel while you look. Please plan to arrive at least a week prior to the start of the term in order to have the time needed to locate an apartment, rent furniture, and set up your utilities.
All three of Spring International's schools are fully accredited by CEA - the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation.
