Miami Country Day School has an active chess community. The Spartan Chess Team finished 3rd at the National K-9 Championship and took 1st place in the Florida State Championship for the third year in a row. Chess is woven into every division of our school from our Middle School chess elective to our Lower School after school chess club and Upper School Spartan Chess Team. Some of our chess offerings are also opened to the community, such as private chess lessons with our Chess Director, Grandmaster Ron Henley, and our summer Chess Camp for children ages 6-14.
Our campus also hosts several chess tournaments that bring in K-1 to K-12 chess players from all over South Florida.  The next scholastic tournament for the 2018-2019 academic year takes place on:
  • March 16th, 2019
Registration for these tournaments is now open. Click here to register or email Chess Tournament Director Mike Hutsko at for more information.
