The parents here at COHS are actively involved in school activities and fundraisers, and share their enthusiasm for the school with their children.

Adventure Homestays Abroad
Opportunity To Host A Student From Germany

Cardinal O'Hara High School is pleased to announce a new international student program that will be coming to our school for three weeks in April 2020.  Adventure Homestays Abroad will be sending approximately twenty students from Germany to visit Buffalo and attend our school as exchange students from April 6-24th.  Since their visit partially encompasses our Easter break, students will attend school on April 6, 7, 8 and 20-24.  The other days of the break will include various excursions, in and around Buffalo. with host families and representatives from Adventure Homestays Abroad.  

The students, who all attend a private high school in Germany, are English speakers and honor roll students who are seeking the opportunity to immerse themselves in the language, culture and geography of Cardinal O'Hara High School and the Western New York area.  The company is looking for parents of students at Cardinal O'Hara High School who would be interested in hosting a student during this visit.  Adventure Homestays Abroad is a well-known company among the area private schools, who have very successfully placed numerous students at the homes of students in local Catholic/private school buildings.  We are excited to provide this opportunity for these young men and women from Germany to visit Cardinal O'Hara High School and develop life long friendships with students from our school. 
If you are interested in hosting a German student during this time, please contact Mrs. Eisenman from Adventure Homestays Abroad at 716-454-2008.  Additional information on the Homestays Abroad Company, as well as application information, can be found at
