There are two completely different ways to become part of the TKS family!

One is being a TKS School Coach, in which you teach chess each day to your city's greatest kids! The other is being a TKS City Coach by owning a TKS Location and business, managing all aspects of The Knight School in your area. Either way, kids are central to everything we do in The Knight School, and everything is oriented toward them. The Knight School is the chess program for the well-rounded kids of America. Our party-based, kid-focused, high-octane approach completes the perfect childhood by helping kids grow in sportsmanship, character, critical thinking, and problem solving. Kids in The Knight School develop self-identities as very smart people, which instills a confidence that leads to classroom success and remains for life. 

One of the reasons The Knight School's revolutionary approach is exploding across America is because we understand that the best chess teachers are educators that understand chess, not chess experts that try to educate. The Knight School has perfected a system to help exceptional teachers become exceptional chess teachers, regardless of whether or not they have ever played chess before applying. 

The Knight School Coaches and Business Owners alike will discover an unmatched opportunity to develop young minds and to make a lasting, positive impact on future generations.

The Knight School is an equal opportunity employer.
