F1 Host Family Program

The host family program is designed for students who intend to stay with a host family. Great Falls Central Catholic will assist in identifying a limited number of host families. In the event that all of the current host family positions are filled, the student or agency will need to provide for this arrangement.

This will provide students with a wide variety of educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities and give students the chance to experience so much that Montana has to offer. Among the possibilities are skiing, hiking, camping, white-water rafting, snowboarding, and fishing. There are also art galleries and museums ranging from modern to Old West to military history.
