Automatic Payment Plan – Credit Card or Debit Card
Your commitment is only on a monthly basis. Once enrolled in our classes, you will stay enrolled with monthly tuition charges until you withdraw from class. If you choose to withdraw for the upcoming month, a withdrawal form must be submitted to the office or online by the 20th of the current month. Once tuition is charged for the upcoming month, you have committed for that month. We do not issue a refund if you withdraw earlier in the month and there are classes remaining. Your tuition is based on enrollment (guaranteed spot) and not a reflection of attendance.
Class tuition is automatically charged on the 25th of each month for the upcoming month using the credit or debit card you have on file. Changes may be made to your credit card at any time through your customer portal or at the front desk. A payment reminder will be emailed around the 15th of every month. A payment receipt will be emailed to the billing contact’s email address on file.
Barron Swim School is a year round program with a flat rate monthly tuition based on an average of four classes per month. If five classes are available, we do not increase tuition. If three classes are available, we do not pro rate tuition.

Stroke Clinics, Tune Ups, Family Open Swim, Birthday Parties, Field Trips, Kids Activity Nights, Camps, Preschool Special Events. Fees are due at the time of registration for all special events. They do not require an enrollment fee. No refunds are provided for special events.
Make Ups may be scheduled for the following reasons:
1. Illness 2. Injury 3. Family Obligation
Please do not bring your child to class if they are showing any signs of illness.
You may schedule your make up class up to 48 hours in advance by contacting our front office.
Make ups cannot be rescheduled, and you cannot make up a missed make up class.
Eligible Make Ups are valid while you are enrolled.
All unused make ups expire when you withdraw, and are not carried over upon re-enrollment.
For their safety and comfort, Little Junior, Kinder Junior & Beginner students are eligible to make up after they have attended 4 of their regular classes.
CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE IN A CHILD’S REGULARLY SCHEDULED CLASS IS IMPERATIVE FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:
- For your child to develop and retain skills. Lesson plans change weekly in order to make each class new, exciting, fun and adventurous.
- Bonding with one’s teacher so they feel safe and comfortable in the pool, which enable more progressive learning.
- Students are not evaluated in a make up class. Students who attend their class each week are perpetually evaluated and move on to new levels more quickly and efficiently than those who miss class often.
Make Ups are not guaranteed. Availability for make-ups is limited.
Within a year of enrollment you will be charged for an average of four classes per month. We never charge for 5 classes per month and never pro-rate for 3 classes per month.
If you feel that your start date didn’t accommodate with four classes per month please see the front desk for assistance.

Registration for these lessons must be made through our front desk at least one week in advance.
- We monitor our waitlists daily and will keep watching for an opening for you.
- It is difficult to estimate how long you will be on the waitlist. Class openings depend on students transferring out of the class, for various reasons, to make room for new students. Sometimes customers are on a waitlist for a day, sometimes for months. We encourage you to enroll in another available class time and wait list for your ideal class time so that your child can still participate in the meantime. If none of our available class times work for you, register for the wait list on as many class times you could do to increase your chances of getting into one of them.
- If an opening in a class you are wait listed on becomes available, the office will call and email you. You will have 24 hours to respond and let us know if you would like to enroll in that class before we move on to the next person on the waitlist or open it up to the public.
- You are not charged anything to remain on a waitlist. Once enrolled in a class, you will be charged at that time for current tuition. We will pro-rate the current month’s tuition based on your start date, if necessary.
- You can check your account, or register for other classes or special activities at any time through your customer portal. See how to log into your customer portal below. You won’t see your waiting lists in your customer portal.
All students up to the age of three, even if they are potty trained, must wear a disposable swim diaper and an approved non–disposable swim diaper to assure a double layer of protection. After the age of three, if your child has been accident free for 4 months they may discontinue the use of swim diapers.
The non–disposable swim diaper must pass the two – finger test (A regular disposable diaper is not allowed; it must be a swim disposable diaper). If two fingers can be inserted under the elastic in the legs or the waist, the swim diaper is too large and the child will not be permitted to enter the water. Wearing only one diaper (regardless of the type) is not allowed. Both types of swim diapers and suits with built-in swim diapers are for purchase in our gift shop.
We understand that your child might be potty-trained prior to age three, but you never know what can trigger an accident. We would rather take the precaution on one child rather than close the pool for everyone.
Students have the choice of whether or not to wear goggles. For those students who wear goggles please note there may be a portion of a class or full class where goggles will not be allowed to be worn. We do this to teach the safety skill of being able to open one’s eyes underwater in any situation. Please visit our gift shop to purchase top brand goggles.
The correct gear is recommended for safety, comfort and performance.
- One-piece snug fitting suit for girls
- Properly fitted shorts or jammers for boys
- Rash guards or swim shirts are not required, but may be worn if your child chooses.
- Long hair is required to be tied back or contained within a swim cap. Swim caps are available for purchase at our Gift Shop.
- No jewelry allowed
