Foss Swim School: The science of swimming and the art of learning.

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.

About FOSS

Learning to swim is about more than techniques. It’s also about learning to love water. For kids, so they are excited to learn swimming. For parents, who will see their confidence rise around water. We’re excited to bring our proven approach, used to teach hundreds of thousands of swimmers since 1993, to you.


Unique curriculum

  • Small classes with kids of similar age and ability, with consistent teachers
  • Focus on fun to make learning enjoyable and faster
  • Swim skills broken into clear, bite-size lessons that build on each other
  • Progression towards graduation as a strong swimmer – not just passing levels

Exceptional teachers and staff

  • Selected for their ability to connect with students
  • Trained to teach the FOSS way with regular refresher courses
  • Everyone at the school teaches or is trained in the entire program
  • We’re parents too — we work with you to make swim school fit your life

Designed for learning

  • Purpose-built indoor pool with top-quality filtration and adjustable configurations
  • Warm 91-degree water — because comfort makes it easier to learn
  • Private changing areas and showers
  • Comfortable viewing area for the rest of the family

Our program: Swim Path®

Our Swim Path® program ingrains water safety instincts and muscle memory that your child will use immediately, and for life. “Find the wall” and “flip to breathe” are more than skills for the pool. They are skills for a lifetime of loving water.
