Academic Families

Broaden your global horizons at home


Academic Families are Scotland’s premier guardian agency looking after international pupils who attend boarding school in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.  They are looking for caring people with a spare room to host a child for occasional weekends and short holidays.


Roni says “We have amazing hosts from all walks of life, with spare rooms, who like to experience different cultures and languages.  It’s a really rewarding experience for both our hosts and our international children.  You’re fully supported by the Academic Families team.”


All expenses are covered.  If you would like an informal chat please get in touch and find out if hosting is for you.
