Learn Chess from
Pacific Chess Academy recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each child.
Pacific Chess Academy started in 2007 as a small organization offering chess program to only few schools in Contra Costa County. We now serve over 30 schools in San Francisco Bay Area,
providing our young chess players with high quality education. Most of 500 new students who joined our program last year became excellent players, and are very successful in various chess tournaments.
We teach all skill levels, from novices to experienced students, and implement the modern technologies and best teaching tools to make our lessons fun and interactive.
Students are normally divided into 3 groups:
Each group is taught by one coach, and a lesson consists of chess instructions, analysis, and tournament games when kids are playing against each other.
We do believe any school will greatly benefit by choosing Pacific Chess Academy as an after school enrichment program provider!
What Is Chess?
What is the structure of our online lessons?
1. Chess Instruction - interactive lesson where kids communicate with coaches and with each other, make moves on the real-time chess board
2. Puzzles- students solve problems, and their results and earned points are displayed on the screen.
3. Simul- all students of a group play simultaneously against their coach
4. Games in the Game Area- kids play against friends and classmates
5. Tournaments - all team members participate in Swiss-format tournaments.
