Montgomery County Chess

Magnus Chess Academy (formerly Silver Knights) has been teaching chess in Montgomery County since 2010. Over that time period we've taught more than 10,000 students in after school clubs, before school clubs, and camps. They include kids who've won state and national championships, but most of our students are beginners looking to learn a fun new game. That's how all the champions start out too!

We run classes everywhere from Bethesda and Chevy Chase to Germantown, Potomac, Rockville, and Silver Spring. During the 2021-2022 school year, we also have a package of online camps on days when students in MCPS schools are off.  Students can also sign up for those one at a time.  For more information on a program, select it below.
