August 2021- International Chess Academy (ICA) This Fall, we are very pleased to announce that the Glen Rock and Teaneck campuses will re-open for in-person learning. We will also continue to provide the same top-notch education with our online training and programs for the virtual community.

COVID-19 taught us many things, but most importantly, it compelled us to apply many of the life lessons you train for in the game of Chess.

ICA employed endurance and applied strategies and tactics to navigate the uncertainties of the pandemic. Despite the restrictions, we identified opportunities to grow and expand our reach and were able to find a way to still pursue the school's goals and foster an environment of fun and learning through the virtual channel.

Our virtual school, ICA Kids Online, allowed us to reach out to the national and international chess community as well as keep all of our former students engaged and learning, developing, and thriving during the past year.

This Fall, we will be providing CDC compliant, in-person classes for our local-area students, as well as virtual and hybrid classes and programs for the rest of our larger community. It promises to be an eventful and exciting time at ICA as we operate in a more advanced and flexible way. If you're a newcomer, consider joining us and learn what makes Chess and the ICA community so wonderful!
