Archangel 8 Chess Academy

Welcome from Western New York's Chess Ambassador!

Archangel 8 Chess Academy offers the best chess coaching and tournament preparation
services in Western New York. 

Participating students include several Buffalo Public School teams, as well as groups that meet under the auspices of the Buffalo and Erie County Library system and the Lockport YMCA.  Private lessons are also available for both children and adults.

Our students become winners!  We are proud to be the home of the 2015 New York State Scholastic Chess Champion, as well as the Western New York Fall Scholastic K-4 Champions!  Recently, one of our most fierce competitors took 13th Place in the K-3 U800 Section of the 2016 National Elementary K-6 Championships.

In addition to mastery of the Royal Game, our students learn sportsmanship, deportment and discipline.  We also have a lot of fun!
