Thanksgiving Break Support for Boarders

Thanksgiving Break is less than 30 days away! As you may or may not be aware, our residential houses officially close for Thanksgiving Break on Wednesday, Nov. 27th at 12 pm and reopen on Sunday, Dec. 1st at 12 pm. If international boarders are unable to return home during this time, some will choose to stay with a relative or close family friend in the U.S., participate in a sponsored Thanksgiving Break program in another city, or take a group vacation.
Here is where you come in! For some international boarders, none of the above options are viable, so with advance notice, we offer to either…
a)       Arrange home stays so that our students can experience a different side of American living over break.
b)      Arrange for students to stay on campus with houseparent supervision for a fee. This is our last resort option.
Campus operations significantly decrease during Thanksgiving Break, so both of the above options are subject to availability and our ability as a community to provide some supplemental support. If you are willing to host students at your home for any period of time including Thanksgiving Dinner and/or help chaperone activities during the closure, please submit the Boarder Thanksgiving Break Support Form as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance for supporting our international community at AOA! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at
