High School Academy

Our high school academy is a one of a kind program specifically designed for motivated high school chess players.

Our International Master and Grandmaster coaches utilize techniques that Jeff DiOrio used to help his high school teams win 12 consecutive conference championships, a state title, and multiple top 25 in the nation finishes.

Our goal is to provide the training and supportive community necessary for you to increase your board ranking on your varsity chess team and achieve a USCF rating of 1800+.

(All new students will be interviewed by Jeff to ensure they are motivated and a good fit for the community)
