About Us

America's Foundation for Chess has created a professionally designed, standards-based curriculum titled First Move™, utilizing the game of chess as a learning tool for 2nd and 3rd grade students. Students are having fun learning, while the requirements set forth by the No Child Left Behind Act, and state standards are being met.

Our vision is to provide elementary school students with an opportunity to develop essential life skills such as the power to think ahead, make good choices, and think analytically. Also, as classrooms have become increasingly diverse, it was important that we design our First Move™ program with tools that bridge social, economic, and cultural boundaries, in order to narrow, and eventually close the achievement gap.
