Scholastic Chess is our passion. We're looking to put chess into all Saint Louis area schools. Call 314.361.CHESS for more info! The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis is an educational organization that is committed to making chess an important part of our community. Through tournaments, casual play and lessons, we cater to each individual. Another important aspect of our mission is to develop in-school and after-school scholastic chess programs. Chess teaches valuable lessons for developing students like problem solving, critical thinking, spatial awareness and goal setting.
This 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art chess center features a world-class tournament playing hall, classroom, library and casual play area. But we’re more than just a community center. We take a multi-level approach to promoting the game of chess: - Our Scholastic Outreach Initiative spreads the educational benefits of chess to thousands of students in hundreds of schools and community centers across the greater Saint Louis area, primarily through afterschool programming. - We’re a member-based community center where players of all skill levels and abilities, from beginner to expert, attend our free classes, participate in tournaments, attend lectures, take private lessons and more. - We promote chess at the top levels by hosting all of the major U.S. Championship events and matches between the world’s top players.
