One unique aspect of BCHS' homestay program is that the international students stay in a local home and have a family-like experience away from their own family. With international students from countries such as South Korea, China, Japan, Vietnam, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Cameroon in recent years, there is increased diversity on the BCHS campus which benefits not only the international students but also the entire student body.
