As a hybrid model of education, CHESS offers families the flexibility to choose how they partner with us according to their educational and financial needs.
As Christ followers, we believe all learning is for the purpose of knowing God better and making Him known to a world in need, and yet we believe disciples are developed through doing. Passionate Discipleship is taught and modeled in an authentic community through various relationships.
The Chess Model of Education
The Core Value of Contagious Learning supports the CHESS model of education. CHESS Christian School provides direct instruction to the students on Core and Elective days. CHESS teachers assign relevant homework to provide students with a depth of knowledge not possible through in-class work alone. Completion of these assignments is integral to success in each class. Parental involvement in their student’s education will further the discipleship process as parents assist their students with homework, clarify confusing concepts, or answer questions. This can help parents identify their student’s strengths and opportunities for growth.
Partnering with CHESS gives families access to collaborative learning environments guided by academic expertise, challenge, and structure, in a community passionate about helping students discover and express their unique learning styles. At the same time, we also strongly believe that it is parents who are under the biblical commandment to train and nurture their children and who are ultimately responsible for overseeing the educational journeys of their children. The partnership that results at CHESS requires a significant commitment by both parents and students, which must be clearly understood and embraced in order for students to thrive.

At CHESS, families have the flexibility to enroll as a homeschool student or a private school student, according to their educational needs.
