Programs

Chess is everything: art, science, and sport.
— Anatoly Karpov, 12th World Chess Champion
One School of the Arts

Our weekly chess programs are designed to create not only a fun environment but a learning environment as well: they combine engaging classroom lessons with time to play chess with peers.

In partnership with One School of the Arts (OSOTA), the Orlando Chess Academy offers a dynamic, two-level chess program that is open to OSOTA and community students in grades K-12.

Level Up Chess (Intermediate level): For kids who really want to take their chess game to the next level. There will be instruction and lesson-based play in this level. It's perfect for players who are wanting structured challenges, feedback from a coach, and just overall better game play.

Competitive Chess (Advanced level): Competitive chess is just how it sounds: these players are wanting to play others who compete regularly or want to learn how to compete at the local, state, and national level. Players in this level usually have an official USCF rating and are practicing and working on their game through study, competition, and daily tactics. Our chess coaches really challenge and speak the language of chess players to elevate their game.

For a recreational chess club option, check out the OSOTA Club Chess! program (open to both OSOTA and community players of all skill levels): http://www.oneschool.net/chess-club/tuesday-fall.
