Love Water TM
Jon and Susan Foss founded Foss Swim School in 1993 to teach swimming as child enrichment – a foundation for a lifetime of fun, safety, and physical, social, and mental benefits.
Laughter is at the heart of our unique curriculum, and graduation reflects confidence and mastery.
MORE THAN LESSONS –
A swim school
We offer everything you expect of a modern swim school: thoroughly-trained teachers, warm water, private changing areas, and pools purpose-built for learning.
We also offer a unique FOSS experience you can’t get anywhere else.
A school approach:
We teach in quarters, place students in classes of similar age and ability, our teachers stay with classes for the full quarter, and we work towards graduation as a strong swimmer – not just passing levels.
The Swim Path™ curriculum:
Our unique program personalizes a path to create the best experience for your student quarter by quarter as they master key skills from day one to graduation. Learn more.
Great teachers and people:
We hand-pick teachers and staff who are outgoing, love working with kids, and who are driven to help others succeed by delivering progress and fun the FOSS way.
Personal passion for safety:
Co-founder Jon Foss was taught to respect the water and embrace swimming by his mother, who lost a sibling to drowning. Our curriculum and approach make safety a top priority and recognize that kids learn to swim best when they learn to love water.
Foss Swim School is committed to delivering the optimal learning environment for students and families.
Natural learning cadence:
Like a school, students learn to swim in quarters, take breaks between quarters, and can take time off without being tied to a monthly fee.
Swimming is all we do. It isn’t one activity on a list, and we aren’t a franchise selling a system. Swimming is the passion and mission of our co-founders who still lead us.
We understand the relationship between teacher and student leads to success. Our teachers know their kids and help them progress when they are ready.
A place kids want to be:
We offer a learning environment that is fun, clean, and safe.

Reopening with Safety First
We are preparing to safely welcome employees and families back to the pools.
Safety is at the core of what we do.
We have been working in conjunction with local Departments of Health, following local guidelines and putting together a comprehensive plan to ensure that when we are able to open we have a safe environment for everyone.
