Argentinean exchange students, Camila (above), Agus, and Matías (below) arrived to Boston safely on Saturday January 21, 2017, and were greeted with excitement by their host siblings, Glennie LeBarron, Sophie Fennell, and Mack Rodgers.

Host an exchange student

 

Each student's experience is enhanced by living with various host families from the Weston community.  The benefits of hosting an exchange student are innumberable.   Exact dates are flexible and short term "substitute" host families are also needed.
