Academic Chess


Chess is a game that is over 2,000 years old.  Countless millions have learned it.  Far fewer have mastered it.  But those children who enter our program will have the edge they need to become world-class players.

We at Academic Chess are dedicated to promoting the merits of chess to children by using stories, dances, and catchy songs to make the game exciting to play, easy to understand, and impossible to give up.

This unique learning experience not only teaches children to play the game of chess, but also prepares them for innumerable facets of life by enhancing their thought processes and honing their analytical skills.


All children who participate in our program will:

  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Improve their concentration and mental discipline

  • Gain confidence and above all, have lots of FUN!!!

All students who join the Academic Chess club will also receive:

  • An exclusive Academic Chess workbook full of lessons, puzzles, and chess history
  • Prizes for effort and participation, irrespective of skill level
  • A magnetic chessboard to take home for practice and fun that can be played anywhere

On the last day of the session, everyone will participate in ‘The Big Tournament’.  All students will take home an awesome prize and will compete for medals in front of their instructors and parents!

Class Structure

An enthusiastic, certified, and well-trained Academic Chess instructor will conduct an engaging, interactive lesson using a two-dimensional demonstration board.

After the weekly lesson, students will play chess against one another using tournament-quality equipment.

During play, the instructor will supervise and coach students as they further improve their chess skills.
