“We are not here to just teach someone how to swim. We are here to change lives. We are here to empower, teach, love, and strengthen. We are here to be the difference makers.”

-Amy Yvonne Emde, Founder of Charleston Swim School

How does Charleston Swim use the Bible in their curriculum?

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” -Proverbs 18:21

We are diligent to only speak life giving words to our students and members. We believe words have power. We even give our students affirmations to say at home sometimes.

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who

hear.” -Ephesians 4:29

We believe in building up our students through the power of words!

“Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one light. Do not have two differing measures in your house—one large, one small. You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” – Deuteronomy 25:13-15

At Charleston Swim School, fairness and honesty are core values we cherish. We’re committed to providing our members with a transparent and trustworthy experience, where integrity is at the heart of everything we do.

We are closed on Sundays

“Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox
and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and
the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.”

– Exodus 23:12

We believe in incorporating positive parenting techniques in working with children.

“Train up a child in the way he should go;

even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

– Proverbs 22:6

We believe in giving back 10%

of all net profits to charity.

food in my house. Test me in this way,” says the LORD of Armies. “See if I
won’t open the windows of heaven for you and flood you with blessings.”

– Malachi 3:10-18
