Can my student participate in public school classes, extracurricular activities, or sports?
Students taught at home under the CHEC Independent School are considered private school students, but they are still eligible to participate in public school extracurricular activities if the public school district allows. Read below for details, and for more information, view our policies.
Public School Classes: Contact your school of residence to see if they allow private schooled students to take classes on a part-time basis.
Extracurricular activities: These are non-academic activities like Chess Club. Contact your school of residence to see if they allow private schooled students to take participate in Extracurricular activities.
Sports: CHSSA governs high school sports and they have stated that as a private school enrollee, your student can play for their school of residence (district authorities can determine which high school within that district) or their school of “attendance” (the district where the independent school is located).
Read the full policies from the CHSSA in their handbook.

Can I enroll if I am out-of-state or out-of-country?
You must follow the homeschool laws for the state or country that you live in.
If your state or country allows for a family to be enrolled in a private school located in Colorado/the US and teach their children at home, then you can enroll in the CHEC Independent School.
HSLDA has all homeschool laws on its website:
- United States homeschool laws
- International homeschool laws (for countries in which it is legal to homeschool)
If your family is US military and living on base, then US laws apply.
