Arch Academy students participate in monthly cove swim

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Kids from a local school are making a splash in La Jolla Friday.

Students from Arch Academy swam four miles around the cove Friday morning. The nonprofit school teaches kids who struggle with learning disabilities and other educational obstacles.

Organizers say the cove swim builds teamwork, and gives kids a sense of accomplishment.

"They learn that they can do it in the first place, and they learn to trust each other, which they pretty much have to do," Arch Academy Executive Director Cheryl Zak said.

After the swim, parents, students and staff enjoyed a barbeque lunch on the beach.
