Chess Rules in your School

Academic Chess brings chess rules and a bunch more to your school!

We are an organization solely devoted to promoting chess among children. Using songs, stories, and dances, we teach the chess rules to your children in a fun and exciting way. This wonderful learning experience not only teaches children to play chess now, but also prepares them for life later by enhancing their critical thinking skills, mental discipline, problem solving, and self-esteem.

This ideal chess program for your school begins with:

Free in-school chess lessons

Our instructors come to your school for three weeks to teach your entire student body the basic rules of chess. Lessons include piece movement, check and checkmate, and special rules of chess.

After-school chess

After the in-school lessons, students interested in learning more will have the opportunity to join Academic Chess' after-school program. We bring our team of instructors, posters, chess books, and years of experience to your campus each week for this 1-2 hour chess club. After-school chess is a low-cost fee-based enrichment program.

In the after school program kids learn chess strategies, chess openings, solve chess diagrams and puzzles. A one hour chess class would consists of 30 minutes of chess lesson and 30 minutes of playing time. Chess lessons are done on a 2d chess board in front of the class. Chess lessons are accompanied by worksheets and workbooks filled with chess games and chess problems. Many prizes are given out for many different reasons.


Although Academic Chess has what it takes to teach all the way to master level, in our after school chess program we try to make chess as fun as possible, and give the kids the tools they will need to study chess on their own. Since no organization can claim to make a chess master in just one hour a weeks, we instead emphasize the fun over the competitive elements and try to get our kids excited about chess and its strategies, so that they can put the time on their own into mastering chess.
