PAX, the Program of Academic Exchange, is interviewing families interested in hosting Athenais from France, an exchange student at BUHS, from November to January, or for the rest of the school year. She is living in a "welcome family," who can only keep her through October but would be happy to serve as a respite family throughout the school year.

Athenais is a delightful, smart, and confident 16-year old girl who likes singing, photography, cooking, martial arts, and skiing. She is an A+ student. Her dad is from Mali ad she has a younger and older brother. She is allergic to cats and raw fruit.

PAX students are enrolled full-time at BUHS and are encouraged to get involved in extracurricular activities. Host families provide room and board, as well as love and support while the student is far from home. Students do not need a separate bedroom, as long as you can provide a bed in a room with a host sibling and a place to study. They have spending money of their own for personal expenses and medical insurance.

Interested families are asked to contact Ann Newsmith at (802) 257-4710 or exchangevt@gmail.com.
