School Grand Prix

Magnus Chess Academy is announcing our 2023 Fall School Grand Prix! 

Starting with our first October tournament and ending with our final December tournament, we’ll be tracking the top performing schools in Grand Prix style.  Your school can earn Grand Prix points at any of our tournaments.  For any tournament, your school score is simply the total of the best four players from your school.   

Throughout the Grand Prix season, we’ll display the top schools on the overall standings page and in our emails after every tournament.  At the end of our last tournament in December, the top ten schools will get a plaque, and the top school will get a lesson and simul with a master at their school.

If you have general questions about how our chess tournaments work, you can probably  find an answer in our chess tournament FAQ. If you have questions about the School Grand Prix, you can check for answers in the School GP FAQ. And you can always email the tournaments manager at
