Learn to Swim

Learn-to-Swim is intended to teach individuals of all ages how to swim. There are three 25 minute sessions offered each day from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. Swimmers are put into mostly based on ability but also on age. Registration is for a session (1 in the fall and 1 in the spring). Lessons are scheduled 1 time a week; multiples days can be booked for more lessons per week if desired. Small group lessons can also be arranged. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis and is open to ACS families first and students continuing from a previous session.
