Our Programs


We teach chess to all levels, from beginner to advanced, using the game as a tool to instill critical life skills. We run the only chess program in Canada that is approved by both York Region school boards (YRDSB and YCDSB), as well as by the Ontario Government's Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. Our proprietary "Thinking Different™" curriculum helps children learn the secrets of chess using an engaging and effective learning strategy.

By taking part in this program students become better chess players while developing their character, improving their social skills and enhancing their cognitive abilities. The life-lessons, strategies, ideas, mindsets, tools and skills they learn in this program will remain with them for the rest of their lives. 

"...Professionals who work with the students relate chess to real life situations and to the Ontario curriculum whether it is math or literacy. Students learn to develop higher-level thinking skills including problem solving, reasoning, connecting and reflecting. Some comments from the teachers include well-organized, fantastic, challenging... The best testimonials, however, come from the students themselves: exciting, super, we learn to set goals, we get to use our imaginations, we all participate, we learn to be fair, fantastic, fun, funny, I learn every day, I’ve learned to plan before I move, I like the stories, awesome, cool and epic...".
