Chess is the intellectual sport at Celerity Schools. The Celerity Chess Education Program teaches our students the rules, discipline, and strategy of chess. Students are also challenged to solve complex chess problems and engage in healthy competition amongst each other and in chess tournaments with students from neighboring schools.
Studies show that chess directly contributes to academic performance and social development. Chess is associated with enhanced cognitive abilities, creative problem solving skills, and a greater capacity for knowledge. Our chess coaches are trained to use chess to help students discover greatness within themselves and to instill confidence, discipline and the determination to succeed at the chess board, in the classroom and in life!
