Chess University, Inc. continues to reach new milestones and is revolutionizing chess education. As of this month, we are the world's first organization to offer live, graded, in-school elective chess classes that are taught entirely online. Our first such offering is an "Honors" course with a point value of 4.5 for GPA purposes. 

We are being approached by schools, government, and other chess companies on nearly a weekly basis and are overwhelmed. The response after teaching chess live to over 13,000 students in July has been amazing.

We are now looking for high-energy, ambitious, and entrepreneurial candidates to help scale our innovative ideas, reach out to more schools, create more content, improve our technology, and get ready to be part of the largest project in chess education history.

We are also looking to partner with more schools, existing chess academies, and any chess-loving individuals or organizations. If you have already emailed us and are awaiting a response, we will get back to you soon.
