Simpson County Welcomes Exchange Students

We are proud to welcome international students to Simpson County for the 2017 school year. Volunteer host families are needed to host students from Brazil, Spain, Japan and Thailand.

When you share your family with a high school exchange student, you are giving them a view of America that will make a profound difference in who they are and how they relate to Americans. You, in turn, get a glimpse into their life and customs. That’s just the beginning of the extraordinary benefits hosting brings to families, communities, and the world.


Students will arrive through Terra Lingua USA, an accredited non-profit organization. Students pass a rigorous application process which includes academic achievement, behavioral expectations, and English proficiency. Each arrives with medical insurance and spending money for all of the exciting things that await them.  You simply provide room and board, and treat them as a family member.

Families with or without kids are welcome to apply.  Complete an application and background check and you’re on your way!

Please visit for more information, student profiles, and to complete an inquiry form.  Feel free to also visit Terra Lingua’s website:

Terra Lingua USA is a U.S. Department of State designated Exchange Visitor Program (J-1 Visa) sponsor.
