The Judit Polgar Chess Foundation for Educational Benefits has developed a new, and so far unique method. Instead of teaching chess as a sport and game the traditional way, this method goes beyond normal chess lessons. Chess becomes an exceptional learning tool! It is especially useful for children born into our current digital society, who gain most of their information through the Internet rather than learning to develop their own thinking.

Starting in 2013, Judit Polgar's skill-building chess program is officially part of Hungary's National Curriculum. The program is not about training chess players. Although it is based on the basic rules of chess, the whole subject is integrated into the regular curriculum, and helps children make better progress in their main subjects, such as math and science, and even reading, writing and arts and crafts.
