Open Your Home, Open Your Heart

Bruno has found his way into the Butts' Family's hearts.


The partnership between St. Thomas Aquinas High School and UTP High Schools has been nothing short of wonderful. The successful connections that have been forged between local host families and international students have resulted in lifelong friendships and a global experience unlike any other.  We invite you to consider being a host family for one of our STA UTP students.  It will open your home and your heart for forever.


Spring Semester - Opportunity to Host!

Have you thought about hosting, but are not sure about committing for a full year? Every January, St. Thomas Aquinas High School welcomes a small group of international students from countries such as Germany, Mexico, Vietnam, Austria, and more! Take the opportunity to host a student for 5 months, and experience for yourself the joy that it can bring! 


Host Family Testimonial: Butts Family 

Currently Hosting: Bruno Sandoval '21 (Mexico)


"Our experience with UTP has been amazing. Our exchange son fits into our family perfectly! It has been pure joy watching him experience the New Hampshire “wilderness”, snow, and many other New England experiences for the first time. Our relationship with his family has also been wonderful. UTP takes such amazing care and time to perfectly match families with students. We will be hosting for years to come! The only part I dread is sending our exchange son home at the end of the year. I highly recommend this experience and opportunity to other STA families!"


Unable to host, but have a friend, neighbor, colleague or family member that is interested? If you refer a family to host for UTP High Schools in the next month (and they are approved and begin their hosting journey with us this January), you will receive an increased referral bonus of $500!
