Teaching Kids to Think. Learning a skill for life

U.S. Chess Center teachers have provided high-quality chess instruction to at-risk youth since 1992. In that time, nearly every child we have taught completed high school by the age of 18. Two long-time students became Rhodes Scholars. Many others earned academic scholarships with dozens attending prestigious universities. We have had more than 35,000 students complete at least 15 weeks of our classes.
