Group Chess Classes Policy & Frequently Asked Questions

When is tuition payment due?

Tuition payments are due before classes begin.  However, we do make exceptions under special circumstances. Please contact us if you feel you have a special circumstance and would like assistance.  We will be more than happy to work with you to best accommodate your needs. 

Can my son/daughter take a trial class before deciding to join the class?

Unfortunately, we do not offer trial classes.

Can my child just take one or two classes and pay a drop-in fee per class?

Yes, please visit to register and pay the drop-in fee.

Do you have different pricing for siblings?

We do not have a different pricing structure for siblings. We keep it a simple per student rate. However, for the king membership, you can split the classes between two siblings.

What is the difference between your chess classes vs. a chess club?

Our chess classes are much different than the standard “chess club”.  In many chess clubs, members simply get together and play chess.  Our chess classes have a great deal of instructional content.   Every class, we teach different chess concepts, ideas, techniques, and strategies.  Students have plenty of opportunity to practice using this knowledge during their practice time.  

What happens if a student misses a class? Are there Make-up Classes?

Yes, we completely understand life happens – illness, vacation, etc. Make up classes can be taken any one of our open locations, during any approved class time. We offer classes throughout the year, so makeups can be taken when the course is offered. Please inform us of your desire to take a make-up class before attending to ensure that we have space available for the day and time you are interested in taking a make-up a class. 

What is your Refund Policy?

Please understand that there are no refunds. However, make-up classes can be taken for any missed classes. (Please see above.)
