This session is 11 weeks long.

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 for others, 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. 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.
