Head Above Water Swim School was established in 2002 to provide swim lessons for children in the privacy and familiarity of their own pool. We specialize in private, in-home, one-on one swim lessons and customize each class to meet your child's specific needs. In addition to providing custom in-home services, Head Above Water also has pools around the Los Angeles area where clients can come to learn if they do not have access to their own pool. For more information about our Los Angeles locations, CLICK HERE. Head Above Water currently offers swim lessons in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas and we hope to continue to grow across the United States and serve your city soon!


Head Above Water has served thousands of families over its 15+ years in business, typically working with 500-700 families annually. During the peak season we employ over 30 swim instructors. We are very excited about our growth and success and we look forward to continued expansion in the years to come.


Our services include: Infant Swim Instruction, Parent-and-Me Swim Classes, Child Swim Instruction (beginner and advanced), Adult Swim Instruction (beginner and competitive), Nanny/Caregiver Swim Instruction, and Lifeguard Services

We wholeheartedly believe that learning to swim is a valuable skill that can not only save an individual's life, but can also increase his/her self-esteem and confidence! The lessons that are learned in the pool will benefit a swimmer long after they learn to swim. As learning styles can vary significantly between individuals, our experienced swim instructors customize their teaching methods for each individual swimmer to ensure that each swimmer gets a tailored experience that best serves his/her needs and goals. 

Our Philosophy

We commit to quality, effective and fun swim lessons for all!

Serving Los Angeles Since 2002!
