Great for Schools

Distinguish your school with a unique program!

In-school chess:

  • allows students and teachers to learn to play chess together
  • serves as a mathematics curriculum enhancement
  • comes with free chess sets for the classroom

After-school chess:

  • is a productive alternative to daycare
  • beats watching TV or playing video games
  • offers a self-esteem building activity for children whose forte is not competitive sports

"Now it's the biggest thing. The kids love chess day." - Karen Dahlquist, 6th grade teacher


A comprehensive, refined system:

  • is organized, insured, reliable
  • handles all administration and scheduling without headaches
  • tailors the program to meet each individual school's needs
  • uses trained, TB-tested, fingerprinted instructors
