School Programs

 

We offer morning, afternoon, and after-school chess programs. These classes are intended to increase the chess knowledge of every child regardless of their starting level. Additionally, we hope that each child can apply the overall thinking skills learned from the chess program to other areas within their education in a positive manner.

  • 10-week program
  • 1 hour per week (consisting of approximately 30 minutes of instruction/discussion and 30 minutes of playing)
  • Following the initial hour, there is an optional 30-minutes of chess tutoring or playing (no additional charge)
  • Grades 1-12 are eligible to participate
  • All playing levels are welcome, including absolute beginners!
  • Students will learn basic strategies and tactics
  • Afterwards, they will be taught more sophisticated ideas and concepts
  • Each student will begin as a Pawn (the first level) and progress their way up to a King (the 6th level) as they show their efficiency and mastery of topics within the curriculum
  • Upon completion of the 6th level, the student will move onto a more advanced curriculum designed for a scholastic tournament player with the same six levels of Pawn to King
  • Curriculum is compiled and structured by William Aramil, the Author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Chess Openings
