Through our partnership with One School of the Arts (OSOTA) in Longwood, we offer a four-level chess program (Beginner, Intermediate I and II, and Advanced) for students in grades K-12. 

Our 2018 Winter semester is currently in progress. Our 2018 Spring Semester begins on March 27th and registration will open at the end of February.

Chess is unique in the sense that it is multifaceted and can train you to think logically, creatively, and resourcefully.
