Setagaya Gakuen Hosting Application

Host families will be reimbursed $50 per day per student. Responsibilities include accommodation (students can share a bedroom but must have their own bed or futon), breakfast and dinner and transportation to and from the Pemberton Woods campus. This can include the public transit system.

In order for us to place students in a family it will be necessary for all adults over the age of eighteen residing in the home to have a criminal record check. GNS will provide you with the appropriate permission form that is to be returned to the school. GNS will cover the cost and will retain the CRCs for a period of three years after which a new search will be required if a family wishes to remain in our database.

If you are interested in hosting a student from Setagaya-Gauken, please complete the following application. If you know of any other families that might be interested in hosting for GNS please have them contact Hitomi Harama, Summer Homestay Coordinator ( or Lance Pimlott (250.370.6800) for further information.
