About Us


CHESSatRGV is an independent Christian homeschooling association. We are not a ministry of, or affiliated with any church or denomination. Our group consists of many families from diverse backgrounds and churches. We do, however, hold to a core Christian Statement of Faith as a group. You do not have to sign a statement of faith in order to join the group, but membership requires that you understand that these statements affect how the group functions.  Please take time to read Statement of faith:

Statement of Faith

  • We believe in the authority of God's Word, the Bible. (II Timothy 3:16)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way for salvation. (Acts 4:12)
  • We believe in the one true God, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (John I:I, I Corinthians 8:6, Matthew 3:16-17 and 28:19-20)



"Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it."  Ezra 10:4

We believe that the ultimate responsibility and  authority for educating children belong to the parents.  We do not endorse or favor any particular "sub-doctrine" when we engage in classes regarding the Bible.We encourage our students to discuss their viewpoints in a free, open and respectful manner. We expect member parents to be actively involved in planning and helping with activities. 


 Dues of $35 are paid yearly and cover the cost of the web site, printing, insurance, co-op costs, supplies, events and mailing.  Each member receives  access to our "members only" pages. Member pages will include useful forms, online members' directory, student web pages, perks and rewards page, Bookswap center, technology pages, and a printable member cards. 


This web site is an effective means of communicating as a group.  You will be able to use this site to securely post files, links, and pictures that you can share with family and friends.  Each family will have a family web site.  Signing up for field trips and events can all be done via this web site.
