PRO has an unparalleled curriculum and evaluation system aimed at providing excellent swim lessons for the children of Cook County.  When you swim at PRO you swim knowing you’re supporting a locally-owned business, run by a parent, who just like you, is wholeheartedly devoted to helping your child learn to swim

We want to provide your family with a warm and welcoming swim school experience. 

Here’s why we’re different:

Professional

PRO Swim Academy is an active member of the US Swim School Association and an active supporter and board member of Stop Drowning Now. Our dedicated and enthusiastic professors train a minimum of 35 hours in the water before taking over classes, obtain Red Cross lifeguarding and CPR certifications, and do ongoing training weekly and monthly throughout their career at PRO. We work constantly to make sure our curriculum, staff, and school are the very best.

Progressive

PRO’s curriculum is based on over 30 years of combined experience in the swim and child development industry and is designed around the real-life ways children learn and grow. We believe that every child is capable of progressing, even if it’s on their own schedule. We meet children exactly where they are and guide their progress to the next level.

Personable

There’s a reason we call our office staff our Parent Support Team: it’s because we are there for YOU.  We know how important it is to feel welcome and supported. We understand the need for flexibility, which is why we allow makeup classes, convenient class schedules and easy monthly billing. From our family-friendly facility to our “always on deck” policy, we are here for your children and for you. We feel fortunate we get to know every PRO family and make them part of our own. 

Progression

Progress, each and every class. At PRO we regularly evaluate our swimmers and communicate progress to you each week through out online custom star tracking system.  We assess students on 4 levels:  Attempted, Increased, Achieved, and PRO.  We are looking for swimmers to do skills correctly, consistently.  You will always be up to date on how your swimmer is doing and you will be notified as soon as they are ready to move up to the next level.
