We help teachers use chess as an educational tool to help students develop the skills needed for success in and beyond the classroom.

Chess in Schools brings together a talented team with a shared passion for developing children’s critical thinking, learning, and life skills through chess. The team provides a blend of expertise in education, chess training, technology, and management.

We are a 501(c)(3) public charity and single-member LLC of the Alabama Chess Federation, also a 501(c)(3) corporation.
