Student Accommodations

Uchenna Academy works with Homestay Plus and their Guardianship Program in finding billet families for athletes travelling away from home to attend our school.

Homestay Plus was established in 2003 by those who themselves have experienced being an international student living in a homestay. This unique background gives Homestay Plus a complete understanding of the necessities required to provide students an enjoyable homestay, while keeping in direct communication with the parents and Uchenna Academy staff.

Each potential billet family is fully screened. The screening process includes:

  • An in-person interview of all the members of the host family, ensuring they share the same values as Uchenna Academy and Homestay Plus
  • Home inspection of the host family
  • Police Record Check of each member of the host family that is over 18 years old
  • Location of the host family must be in a safe area, near Uchenna Academy and easily accessible to public transportation
  • Each Host Family is evaluated by the students at the end of their stay.

Uchenna Academy students receive:

  • Private Bedroom
  • Two/Three meals per day
  • Access to public transportation
  • Access to the internet
  • Access to laundry facilities
  • Verified in-person inspection
  • 24/7 Emergency Contact
