International students who attend KingsWay School have 3 accommodation options:

1. Living with Parents

All students 10 years and younger must live with their parents in New Zealand. Many of our senior students also choose to live with their families. They all enjoy being part of the friendly KingsWay community.

2. Homestay

Many of our international students enjoy staying with one of our homestay families in the KingsWay community. These families love and care for their student during their time in New Zealand.

3. Designated Caregiver

Sometimes international students choose to live with an extended family member or close family friend living in New Zealand.
