The Berkeley Chess School offers intermediate and advanced chess instruction at the Grace Presbyterian Church, 2100 Tice Valley Blvd, Walnut Creek, CA 94595. 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 manners. And did we mention: it’s FUN!
For siblings, the first child is full price; additional siblings are half price. Some reduced fees are available to low-income families upon request. Children 6 and under are accepted on a provisional basis. There is no beginner level at this program.
After the 5:30-7:00 class, there is one round of a rated tournament each week. All participants must be members of the USCF. You can join on our site or on the USCF site. Please be sure your membership has not expired.
