My child is in T1 (14 or 15), how can we host a 17 or 18 year old?
Although it may seem like a bad match to have a younger UNIS student matched with an older visiting student, we assure you that it will not be an issue. We have seen many cases in which this has not been a problem. If there is a problem once the student arrives, feel free to contact the Visiting Schools commission and we will do our best to help make accomodations.
