Description

Chess is fun and can be learned quickly and easily. Studies have found that chess helps improve test results in reading, science, and math, and produces growth in critical cognitive skills. Beyond academia, chess influences social behavior including self-esteem, respect, patience, and good sportsmanship. And did we mention: it’s FUN!

Boards and sets are provided for our classes. The minimum class size is 10; maximum is 20. Enrollments are accepted in the order received. For siblings, the first child is full price and additional siblings are half price. Also, some reduced fees are available to low-income families upon request.

Note: The first parent to volunteer to assist the chess class by remaining in the room during the class will receive free chess for their child this session. No chess experience necessary! Volunteers are required to have fingerprinting and a TB record on file at the school. Please contact the Berkeley Chess School for more information: programs@berkeleychessschool.org.

The Berkeley Chess School is a non-profit organization offering chess instruction from kindergarten through high school for over 25 years.  It is an affiliate of the US Chess Federation.
