On-Campus Chess Programs
Our on-campus chess classroom programs are designed for K-12 students from a wide area
in North New Jersey, including East Hanover, Florham Park, Livingston, Parsippany, Whippany, Roseland,
Caldwell, Verona, and West Orange. Through a commitment to excellence, every student receives appropriate
instruction based on their individual needs and our chess tutors help them to develop gaming skills. While
beginners learn how to play chess, advanced players can improve analytical combination visualization and
master their tactical skills in chess. Students learn chess rules, complete theory of chess strategy,
including opening strategy, middle-game play, and endgame strategy, chess tactics and calculation, attack and
defense, evaluation and converting a material advantage, counterattack, and all aspects of any situation that
may occur on the chess board.
Our chess lessons run 1 hour and are scheduled weekly or can be taken twice a week. Each
on-campus chess class consists of a theoretical lecture followed by a practical session, where the students have
the opportunity for supervised play with other students of similar levels. The content of each chess lesson within
the curriculum is determined by its chess tutor (chess coach) according to the student’s appropriate level and
additional home assignment can be given to reinforce and extend the lesson. All of the students participate in
chess tournaments. The first traditional chess class is free for new
students at Caldwell University. If you would like to register for your first free chess class, please refer to the
Applications and Forms page and follow the registration instructions on that page.
