The Academy is a tutoring program
The Christian Home Education & Social Society, CHESS, began in 2006 when several Tiftarea homeschooling families decided to create a positive, Christ-centered environment where home schooled children could learn together in a classroom setting. The CHESS Co-op began offering supplemental instruction in music, spanish, latin, art, and other classes to home schooled children at all grade levels. The Co-op has grown to include over 90 children.
In 2009, several families within the Co-op created the CHESS Academy. The Academy tutors 3rd grade through high school students in the subjects of Math, Language Arts, History, and Science. CHESS Academy offers a unique learning environment to homeschooling families. The Academy in no way replaces homeschooling; it is only intended to assist and
support your family in giving your child(ren) a great education.
CHESS Co-op meets during the school year on Tuesdays from 2:00-4:30 at First Baptist Church - TyTy. Co-op is for ages kindergarten through high school. We meet for three 6 week sessions throughout the school year. You may contact Mrs. Amy Stephenson at for further information on how to become a part of our co-op.

CHESS Academy began in 2010 and offers a three day-a-week tutoring (Tuesday-Thursday) for 36 weeks each year. We begin in late August, end in late May, and take holidays for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break.
We want our students to have a great experience at CHESS Academy so we try to create a loving, fun, and comfortable environment. To acheive this goal, we have seating limits in each of our blended classes. We offer tutoring in Math, Language Arts, History, and Science for 3rd-high school.
The Academy in no way replaces homeschooling; it is only intended to assist and support your family in giving your child(ren) a great education.
We meet at New Life Presbyterian Church in Tifton where they have been gracious enough to allow us to use their facilities for teaching and meetings.
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by
the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
(2 Tim. 3:16-17)
