About Us

Our Mission

Baltimore Kids Chess League, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists to promote scholastic chess educational opportunities in Baltimore City that foster skills necessary for overall academic achievement.

Why Chess?

Chess develops general intelligence, self-control, analytic skill, and increased ability to concentrate (Stuart Margulies, ``The Effect of Chess on Reading Scores: District Nine Chess Program Second Year Report,'' 1992).

Chess makes an excellent after-school activity at any grade level and the per-student cost can be substantially less than other academic or sports activity.

Scholastic chess has been successful in many cities and school systems around the country. Take a look at Portland, Houston, Dallas, and New York. So why not in Baltimore, too?
