Welcome to Chess Academy for Kids

San Diego Chess Academy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to teaching children the wonderful game of chess. Tests have shown that young chess players develop strong analytical and problem solving skills. Chess players do better in school and develop valuable leadership skills. Using a proven curriculum designed to make chess fun and exciting, our US Chess Federation Certified Instructors can help your child to develop the skills that will help him or her excel in the future.

The San Diego Chess Academy provides high quality instruction and professionally run competitions for chess players of all skill levels. Founded by Dave Melrose, the academy offers a wide range of activities for students who wish to learn and have fun. The San Diego Chess Academy has a full staff of experienced, professional, teachers.

Any boy or girl can become a competent chess player with the proper program of instruction. The comprehensive course gives each student the precise material they need at every stage of their development. One reason the program is so successful is that it gives the student the correct balance between study and practice, laying a solid foundation for future development.
