  • Swimming

    For those enrolled in the K-5 programs that include a swim component, swimming is provided at our K-12 Sports Center in our heated outdoor swimming pool. Our qualified aquatics instructors teach our group lesson program. Small group instructional swimming lessons are provided during the afternoons, Mondays through Thursdays. All children are swim tested for group placement and testing determines the appropriate area of the pool for the student’s participation. The program goals are to encourage water safety, to increase water confidence, and to enhance skills development. Parents are invited to observe swimming at the culmination of each session.

    Children should come to school prepared to swim on the first day of their program.
