Who We Are

​Founded in 2018, New York Chess Academy (NYCA) organizes programs and services for all levels and ages, which include camps, after-school classes, private lessons, and tournaments.


Each member of our enthusiastic team has had their life positively affected by chess. It is this passion for the game and the desire to share it with others that led to the founding of the academy.


New York Chess Academy is determined to promote chess, in all its aspects, to all those interested in it; discover new talents and develop self-confidence, decision-making skills, friendships, and sportsmanship; and, ultimately, lead to excellence.


By offering its services at affordable prices, New York Chess Academy strives to ensure that chess, its undeniable benefits, and its welcoming community are accessible to all. It is this drive to provide equal opportunities that distinguishes  New York Chess Academy in the field of chess.


Our vision is to support the Chess Community, to create new opportunities, and to seek growth and cohesiveness. By making chess accessible to everyone, we strive to make a positive impact on the community.


A key part of New York Chess Academy’s vision is equality. Through treating everyone with respect, we aim to lead by example and encourage a sense of unity and camaraderie among chess players.


At NYCA, our core values aren't just words on a wall—they're the guiding principles that shape everything we do. We will never get tired of observing these values because they are the compass that guides us towards our collective vision of success.
