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.


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.
