The PACC is proud to promote small class sizes with an average of 5:1 ratio per class. Younger classes are typically held with 2-4 students, and older classes are typically held with 3-7 students. Private lessons are also available is a student is needing more hands on work with an instructor.
Class spots are first come first serve. If a class is full, a waitlist will be used and parents will be contacted with alternative times for that class. A class will never be taught with more than the student maximum to guarantee that we keep ratios proper for the best student outcomes.
Private Lessons are available here at The PACC during select swim lesson sessions. To get more information on when we have classes available please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 218.346.9843
