LIFE AT FEIA
THE HOME STAY EXPERIENCE
Students of the Fort Erie International Academy who choose to live with us full time, currently live in off-campus housing with a House Leader. This is a multifaceted and integral experience for our students to learn to work together as a team to manage responsibilities and roles within their household.
Housing capacities range from 6 to 18 students within each of the numerous family-style homes. With the assistance of our House Leaders, the Home Stay experience teaches students about the various responsibilities of running a household and encourages leadership, initiative and cooperation to work together as a team.
Living in a house with other students means that each child needs to consider the time it takes to get ready for school, make a meal, or commute to the campus. Our students work together to ensure that everyone has time to complete their routine and make it to campus on time for class, after-school activities, or weekend excursions.
MEAL PLANNING AND HEALTHY EATING
Each evening during the week, House Leaders work through a rigorous schedule with each student that includes homework, individual study, mealtime, cleaning and, of course, free time. This coordinated scheduling helps to establish a routing that, over time, supports the student's independent time management.
