Chess is fun! It can be learned quickly and easily, especially by middle school students!  Studies have found that chess improves 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. 


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 student is full price; additional siblings are half price. Also, some reduced fees are available to low-income families upon request. Email at  Please email our office at
