OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE INSTRUCTION TO AS MANY CHILDREN AS POSSIBLE

“It is beyond coincidence that chess and music produce child prodigies with a much greater frequency than that of other intellectual pursuits. While there is no theoretical necessity to explain why this should be so, I am quite comfortable in stating that chess and music ameliorate the rapidly maturing frontal lobe of the child’s brain by providing the adequate challenge that it requires to achieve its fullest potential.” – Chris Torres
