Chess changes lives.

Chess changes the lives of students.

More than a game, Chess in Education (CIE) uses chess as a vehicle for introducing and reinforcing academic and 21st Century skills.

Chess offers the opportunity to build connections between teachers and students, improving the classroom, and school environment.

CIE focuses on chess as an educational tool – making deliberate connections for skill transfer to other domains.

“My students’ favorite part of the day is chess! Chess reaches every learning level from special education to the gifted student.”
