SPLASH……Do you know how to swim?  If you do not NOW is the best time to take advantage of free swim lessons.  Our Community partner of over 1o years, the ES*MH YMCA has once again offered to offer free swim lessons to JSEC students.   It is so important that all students know how to swim, so they are able to enjoy aquatic activities and be safe at all time near, around, or in the water.    Please see information below regarding the free swim lessons….all you have to do is follow the steps below:


  1. Students must physically come into the YMCA (438 Hope Street, Providence) with a parent or guardian and fill out appropriate forms.  Upon entering go to the front desk and inform office staff you are interested in the Free Swim Lessons.  They will give you forms that must be completed fully then returned to the ES*MH YMCA
  2. As of today: 8/28/18 there are still spots available so please go to YMCA as soon as possible because space is limited.
  3. JSEC and the ES*MH YMCA are happy to be able to partner up to offer this life-saving program.  Please take advantage as again space is limited.
