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 and enhance their understanding of the game, while motivating them to move on 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.

Typically, we divide the time about equally between teaching and guided practice games. We always design our instruction to best fit the needs of the group and to ensure students’ rapid chess progress as well as their enjoyment of chess.
