Since 1999, we have specialized in chess education for elementary school students. At Educational Technologies, our staff of dedicated chess teachers and leaders will do all that they can to provide safe, friendly, creative, appropriate and enriching chess experiences for children, according to the highest standards of care.
Currently, we run 15 after school chess programs in southern Connecticut. We host the Greater New Haven Fall Open, Greater New Haven Winter Open, and CT State Championships, run week-long summer chess programs, and our instructors are available for private and semi-private lessons at your convenience.
All instructors are current or former members of the West Haven High School Chess Team, which won the CT High School State Chess Championship in 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, the 2004 U1500 National High School Chess Championship, and the 2005 New England High School Championship.
