MATURE, CAREER SWIM TEACHERS WITH THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING IN THE TRIANGLE

what makes phd swim school different

   WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE


It's simple:  Our students learn to swim faster, safer, and more competently than any other swim school in the area.  We teach kids to survive an aquatic accident in 21 days.  In no other program will your child have a fighting chance to survive an encounter with water in this amount of time.  We are the most efficient use of your time and money for swim lessons.


With PhD Swim School, you will have a competent swimmer in weeks, not years, with much less time, money, and effort.  We teach the whole spectrum of swimming ability from infant survival to competitive swimming.  Our teachers are adult professionals who are better trained than any other swim program in the area, and are compensated accordingly.  We are the only swim school in the Triangle that is Durham Living Wage certified.  Our family-owned, local company is committed to sustainable business practices, local and global social justice, and serving our community in and out of the water.


This is our life's passion, not our summer job.  Come see the difference that makes!

Teaching the science of swimming since 2003!
