Monterey Bay Student Services strives to pair every student with the right family. By completing the application, you will help us match your interests and preferences with your host family. Some of the items include living with children, family pets, medical needs and personal interest. Please be thorough and complete. Once the pairings are complete, host families receive a copy of the application.

The questionnaire below will assist us in placing you with a host family.  However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet all of your requests.
