There are discounts offered for each additional class or sibling.

The YMCA is offering Gym and Swim programs this year with the Fitton Center YMCA program being  twice a week. Other YMCA’s that offer classes, but are once a week are: East Butler, Fairfield, Countryside, and Powel Crosley, Jr. If you do not live in Cincinnati or I didn’t mention the Y close to your house,  contact your local YMCA and 1) see if they have a homeschool program, or  2) see if they can begin a program for you. This actually began over 15 years ago as a result of a friend of mine asking the Y if they could have something for homeschool students.
