One of America’s oldest educational institutions, the 220-year-old Episcopal Academy opened a new 123-acre campus in Newtown Square, 13 miles west of Center City Philadelphia. The school drew on their considerable resources and put together a dream team of East Coast architecture firms to design a new campus.
The Burke Natatorium housed in the Dixon Athletic Center supports the Episcopal Academy’s new 1,200-student campus and its commitment to providing competitive athletic programs and a broad range of activities for students. The design of the competition pool was driven by the need to accommodate swim lessons, physical education programs, and competitive swimming and diving. This facility is a highly visible symbol of activity which contributes to the urban fabric and expands the perception of the campus environment
