The U.S. Chess Center offers high-quality chess instruction at reasonable cost. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational charity with the mission of teaching chess to children as a means of improving their academic and social skills.  We emphasize good sportsmanship so that everyone has fun.



We use a 10:1 or better student:teacher ratio. Our students have won nearly every national and state chess championship title and our coaches have won about 20 Virginia Coach of the Year titles in the past 25 years. Hundreds of our students have earned college scholarships.


 


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.
