[Afterschool Programs– sometimes called “Outside Programs” (because outside organizations host these opportunities at our school for a fee) currently include BAM Theatre, Chess Scholars, Young Rembrandts and Language Labs.]
Note: As a service to Whittier families, The Whittier PTA assists in coordinating logistics of this program at the school – the PTA does not set pricing nor does it make any $$ from program registration.
Develop your child’s intellect through the fun game of chess! Current research has shown a strong link between chess and academic performance in a variety of areas, including mathematics and language arts. Also, chess has been proven to enhance motivation, concentration, focus, social skills, and creativity.
No previous knowledge of chess is necessary. Each class will consist of a fun, interactive teaching period and guided practice time. Both new and returning participants are welcome and will get to the next level under the guidance of an experienced Chess Scholars coach.
Check back soon for fall 2022-2023 session info.
