Virtual Lessons Let By Our Talented ICA Coaches, Happening RIGHT NOW!
Posted: 4/18/2020 | Updated: 4/25/2020

For over 20 years, International Chess Academy (ICA), led by a staff of highly trained coaches and instructors, has been teaching kids and adults how to play chess by offering classes, tournaments, and camps, hosting world-class Grandmaster legends, and serving the NY metropolitan chess community.

Recently, the Covid-19 outbreak forced ICA to answer the call to action, and ICA has not disappointed. Without missing a beat, ICA has rolled out an ALL NEW Online Chess Program. Maintaining a sense of responsibility and commitment to the students and the entire chess community, ICA is continuing to provide online instruction within a SAFE environment that offers a flexible and ample selection of classes and slots available for students of all ages and all skill levels, located anywhere in the world.

The virtual class structure is kept as close as possible to the traditional in-person classroom, in that a 6 to 1 student teacher ratio is maintained, with lots of individual attention, class participation, interaction, games at end of class, and homework. It is very important during these times to keep kids active, focused, learning, socially engaged, and most important, challenged.

Join the fun! International Chess Academy offers 11-week sessions.
