The Naperville Chess Academy
The Naperville Chess Academy (NCA) is the premier chess training program in the Western Suburbs. While we have trained multiple state champions, we are most proud of the hundreds of young lives we have bettered through chess.
The NCA meets weekly to provide high-quality chess instruction to K-12th graders. We offer 4 class levels (Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook) that can meet the needs of kids from complete beginners (Pawn Level) to experienced tournament players (Rook Level).

Jack - Bishop Level
My son Jack has been attending the Naperville Chess Academy since we moved here. He has been learning a lot while also having a lot of fun. He regularly participates in fun Friday Night Quad tournaments as well as the larger tournaments that the NCA has hosted. Our family is so happy to have found the NCA and we hope he continues to attend for years to come. Hopefully one day Jack will play on Coach DiOrio’s team in high school! - Remy K.
Grady - Rook Level
I have watched my son’s chess mind grow so much since attending the Naperville Chess Academy. He is learning new concepts and theories that I have seen him put into action successfully in tournament situations. More importantly, he is having fun attending and has made great chess friends at the Academy. I highly recommend the Academy to anyone who has a child interested in learning more about chess. - Paul L.
