OUR CURRICULUM


Picture of chessbelts

Chess Scholars’ training program is based on our unique Chess Belts® system with a gradual step-by-step increase in the difficulty of material. This system enables us to quickly teach children the rules of chess, enhance their understanding of the game, as well as take them to a higher chess skill level.

Our curriculum is well suited for the needs of young students. Children love our Chess Belts system. We also have a special point system designed to avoid discouraging young beginners. We work with students of all levels, including complete beginners.

We always design our instruction to best fit the needs of the group and to ensure students’ fastest chess progress as well as their enjoyment of chess. Typically, we divide the time about equally between teaching and guided practice games. In some cases, we split up the group into two parts, when the students’ range of skills is too wide.
