NATIONAL SCHOLASTIC CHESS FOUNDATION

Delivering Exceptional Chess Instruction For Over 30 Years

If you are a school, after-care, or other organization serving children that would like to consider adding chess to your programming, contact us. We welcome new partnerships and opportunities to share the many benefits that chess can provide in education and in building community.

For parents in Westchester, our in-person summer chess program will return to Hartsdale for 5 weeks beginning July 25. Full and half-day options are available. Click here for more details.

SECURING THE LEGACY – A NSCF FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

As the impacts of the pandemic continue, the NSCF has determined that it is not enough to just try “riding the storm out.” Our approach for this year is to focus on developing new curriculum for schools, homeschool, and community programs, and to create resources and tools that enhance chess education online and in the classroom

You can help us emerge from this season of turbulence better positioned to make a lifelong impact on the children we serve. 

On Thursday, May 19, the NSCF recognized four women for their lifetime contribution to growing chess in the New York region.

Five high school students have been playing together on the Hunter Chess team since kindergarten.

When a former student enrolled his own son in Ridgeway, he felt compelled to rebuild the school’s chess culture.

A MODEL FOR COMMUNITY CHESS PROGRAMS

The NSCF offers school and community chess programs across the USA. The primary focus of these programs is to develop critical thinkers.

NSCF Tournaments are a great way for aspiring players to put their knowledge to the test and to develop life skills too!

I received chess instruction at Ridgeway Elementary School in White Plains and started my tournament career in NSCF tournaments.
