Due to increased Covid restrictions at the Unitarian Church, CHEC has moved our class location to the shelters at Pen Park. The Lighthouse and DMR class locations will remain unchanged. Please make sure that your child brings plenty of water and a chair or blanket to sit on.

Registration opens at 9am on August 21. Please carefully review the class schedule because some changes have been made.

The Community Homeschool Enrichment Center (CHEC) will be hosting an Open House from 1-3:30pm on Monday, August 30. It will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 717 Rugby Road in Charlottesville (the parking lot is on Fendall Avenue across the street from the church). The Open House is an opportunity for: (1) new families to see our space, ask questions, and meet teachers and staff; (2) for all families to meet and reconnect with each other; (3) and for kids to participate in some fun crafts and activities, such as “meet the reptiles” with Jake Pugh, close-up magic with Wes Iseli, French games with Carolyn Fay, a green screen activity with Lighthouse Studios, and more! Please note that, as part of our rental agreement, the church is requiring that everyone be double-masked (or masked with a secondary filter) when indoors and that we limit the number of people in each building to under 50. Masks are not required outdoors during the open house. If you have questions or concerns about our masking requirements, please contact the Administrator, Cindy Young, directly at

Before the first day of class, all families MUST complete a registration form. You must do this even if you have completed one in the past because they contain new information. The forms are fillable, online forms and can be accessed at the links below. You only need to complete one form depending on what types of classes your child is taking. If you need a pdf version of the form, please email us at and we will send it to you. If you are taking only in person classes, please complete this registration form - If you are taking only online classes, please complete this form - If you are taking online and in person classes, please complete this form -

If you have not already, don't forget to sign up for our CvilleCHEC Mobilize group. This is the best way to get email announcements about things like the Open House and our pizza lunches. This is also the best way to communicate with other CHEC parents about carpooling etc. You can find the group at

A couple of issues have come to our attention, so I wanted to let everyone know what CHEC’s peanut/tree nut and illness policies are. NUT POLICY As mentioned on our website, CHEC does not have a nut-free policy. However, several of our students have severe peanut and tree nut allergies. We encourage parents, students and teachers to refrain from bringing peanuts or tree nuts to CHEC. If you are the parent of a child with an allergy, please be aware that we cannot guarantee a nut-free environment. We are only tenants at Sojourners and have no control over what is brought into the building when we are not there. With that said, I encourage parents to talk with your children about washing hands and cleaning up messes after they eat, regardless of what it is (we also have children with egg, gluten and other allergies). This issue came up after we found a peanut butter sandwich scattered across the floor in the hallway. Things like Sunbutter are a great alternative. SICK POLICY It’s that time of the year, and the flu is going around. If your child is sick, please do not bring them to CHEC. Please wait at least 24 hours after a fever breaks before bringing your child to class. If a child becomes sick while at CHEC, we will call the parent to pick their child up as soon as possible. Thank you for you help and consideration.
