The U.S. Chess Center is a non-profit charity with the mission of teaching chess to children as a means of improving their academic and social skills.


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 hundreds attending highly selective universities. We have had more than 35,000 students complete at least 15 weeks of our classes.
