Highlands AFS Seeks Host Families for 2022-23 School Year


For over 50 years, Highlands AFS has welcomed exchange students from all over the world! We recently had to say goodbye to Kalle (Denmark), Francesco (Italy), Mohamed (Tunisia), Chiara (Italy), Elba (Spain) and Anjulie (Germany), all of whom had a very successful and meaningful AFS experience this past year with our wonderful host families and school community!

Highlands AFS is currently SEEKING HOST FAMILIES for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. We already have three girls placed with families, but are looking for host families for one or two more students. Not sure if you can commit to the full school year? Become a “welcome family” for 12 weeks! Interested families should contact Kathy Harenski at or 412-848-3952 or contact Rachael Ochoa at
