Planning a visit?


CHESS has two annual events that are open to anyone interested in our program, or you can schedule a visit.


1. Expo

The Expo in the spring is an exciting opportunity for families to hear a brief word from our teachers, meet them, ask questions, and find out what makes them passionate about their subjects. Some families will add or change their class choices after attending the Expo and hearing directly from our teachers. Parents and students grades 7-12 are welcome to attend, as well as younger siblings; however, no child care will be provided. It is strongly suggested that registered families meet their teachers at least once before the classes begin in September and the Expo is a great time to do that.


2. Open House

We host an Open House in the spring each year for families who are interested in the program, as well as for currently participating families. Visitors can sit in on the classes throughout the day, on both Monday and Wednesday. Visiting a class is a great way to determine if a class is a good fit for your student, in addition to a careful reading of the teacher’s prospectus for the course.


3. Visiting CHESS

Can’t make those dates? We’d love to have you stop by. Just contact the Tara Taylor or Becky Hauge prior to your planned arrival (at least two business days ahead is helpful). Please let us know if you’re interested in visiting a particular class, teacher, or just want to see what’s happening in general.
