Learning Chess—A Proven Way to Boost Brain Power

(Even If They’re Fidgety and Can’t Sit Still)

The problem with many chess learning methods and programs is they’re too difficult for children to voluntarily sit through — or it just takes too long for them to make progress.

So, young children have a hard time staying focused on the fundamentals of learning and practice … and never end up developing their true potential.

What’s different about the Chess Course from Kids Academy is it makes learning chess truly “feel” like play (because, after all, playing chess is supposed to be fun!).

This hooks them, keeping them coming back to learn again and again.

Learning chess has proven brain benefits for young children, setting them up for success throughout elementary school and beyond:

Higher IQ

In one study of 4,000 students, boys’ and girls’ IQ scores rose significantly after just four months of chess instruction

Better Performance on Tests

In a study of 450 5th graders, those who had learned chess performed better on tests than those who hadn’t learned chess

Improved Memory

6th graders in Pennsylvania improved their memory and verbal skills through chess playing

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (the studies and proven benefits are too numerous to list here).
