We are The Chess Emporium, a scholastic chess teaching company in business for 25 years. We teach Chess to young students to empower their future!
The Chess Emporium was founded in 1993 in Phoenix, Arizona. Since that time, we have grown to become one of the nation's premier providers of scholastic chess tournaments and instruction. The Chess Emporium actively encourages the youth of the Phoenix area to play Chess.
With clubs in hundreds of schools and four learning centers, we offer a one-stop environment for everything chess. Our programs offer students from kindergarten through adult a chance to learn about chess. We teach all skill levels, from beginners to advanced players.
The mission of The Chess Emporium is to engage, teach and coach children Chess. We wish to implement Chess as a life long curriculum for students of all ages. We believe we should attempt to show every student respect and concern as if they were our own children, or our own brothers and sisters. Helping our students develop a good self-image and self respect is a portion of what we hope the study of Chess can do. Introducing, implementing and helping to utilize the critical and creative thinking processes that come with the study and play of Chess into the student's mind is a goal we seek to achieve. Taking the benefits of Chess and reflecting the similarities into life situations is part of our plan. Further, we hope to create sustainable Chess learning centers where students of all ages are able to have quality teaching and guidance in the game of Chess. We would like to see Scholastic Chess become a player in the scholastic learning industry where there is a haven for structured, experiential learning for the student of this complex game.
