We partnered with schools to offer after school chess program for K-12 students. Please contact us if you would like us to offer our program to your schools.

For Fall 2020, we will be offering after school extra curricular remotely to ensure safety to our students. We offer a high level of flexibility to ensure that the schedule would work with busy parents.Β  We offer three different class levels in our weekdays extra curricular program. Each program has a minimum 4-weeks session.

Classes are done over Zoom and are led by US Chess National Masters, RJ Magallanes.
