New York Scholastic Chess Club offers curriculum chess and after-school programs to schools, private lessons for groups and individuals, host tournaments and run chess camps during school breaks. Our programs are tailored to students ranging from absolute beginner to national champions.
In 2017 alone our schools won 1st place at the New York City Championships in multiple sections, individual champions and 14 top 10 finishes. We also had top 2 finishes as a team and individually at Girls Nationals in Chicago and many top 10 finishes at Super Nationals in Nashville.
