The Columbus Chess Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose aim is to promote chess for K-12 students in central Ohio, especially for students in underserved areas. We host K-12 tournaments, offer a summer camp, hold free tournaments for beginners, and partner with schools and libraries around Franklin County to support and help establish scholastic chess programs and tournaments.

If you are a coach or parent who would like to start a chess club at your school or in your area, please send us a message in the ‘Contact Us’ page.
