Welcome to CHESS!

Christian Home Educators' Support System (CHESS) was founded in the fall of 1993 as a co-operative effort on the part of a few Lansing area home educating families who realized that by working together and sharing the load, we could all benefit tremendously!  We are currently serving over 300 families from all over the greater Lansing area and beyond!

CHESS provides a wide variety of opportunities to interact with other families who, like you, are striving to follow the Lord in the home education of their children.  Some are just starting to homeschool, others are seasoned veterans; all are an important part of the CHESS community.

When your family becomes a part of CHESS, you will have an immediate "connection" with other like-minded, uniquely-gifted homeschooling families.  You can tap into the experienced, talented, and willing pool of individuals within the CHESS network, where everyone's strengths and abilities are shared in order to enhance the home education process for all involved.  United in Christ, we form that strong "support system" everyone needs to succeed in homeschooling!
