Get to know us...

CHESS is a ministry designed to meet the educational, spiritual, social, and academic needs of homeschooling families in the Central Texas Area.

We are a group of approximately 125 families who have chosen to homeschool our children for a variety of reasons. Our members come from within an approximate 50-mile radius of the Fort Cavazos (formerly Fort Hood) Army Installation.

This includes areas such as Killeen, Fort Cavazos, Harker Heights, Gatesville, Kempner, Lampasas, and Copperas Cove, and more.

Our membership is culturally diverse, representing the presence of the local and military community. We provide support to each other in the form of educational, recreational, and informational activities.

We strive to provide co-op classes on Fridays for 8-10 weeks each semester in the Fall & Spring, and depending on teaching availability, Tuesday afternoons as well. We also strive to offer parent's nights once a month, two field trips per semester, prom & graduation once a year in addition to other activities.
