About SwimAmerica at Penn Charter

SwimAmerica lessons are available to students ages 2 to adult.  The lessons follow a simple step-by-step format that allows each child to progress at his/her own pace.  Developed by swimming coaches, SwimAmerica is the only learn-to-swim program endorsed by the American Swimming Coaches Association.  SwimAmerica is a goal driven, technique oriented program that focuses on drown prevention and water safety.  All of our staff members must go through intensive training and testing before they are allowed to teach swim lessons.  Groups are kept small (no more than 1 instructor to 6 students) in order to make sure that all of our students learn and progress quickly.
The SwimAmerica swim school offers five Sunday afternoon sessions throughout the year at the William Penn Charter School, located on School House Lane in historic East Falls.  Each session is eight weeks in length (summer session is 6 weeks) and each lesson is 25 to 30 minutes in length.
