C.H.E.S.S. seeks to provide an easily accessible network of communication and resources which will support, encourage, and equip parents, enhance the experience of homeschooling for children and families, and educate those who are interested in homeschooling. We cooperate with and encourage all home educators in the greater Rolla area in matters of common interest, specifically focusing on families who have chosen to educate their children from a Christian perspective.
