Hathaway Brown School – Carol and John Butler Aquatic Center

Shaker Heights, OH

Founded in 1876, Hathaway Brown School is the oldest college-preparatory school for girls in Ohio. The new Carol and John Butler Aquatic Center was constructed to commemorate their 125th anniversary milestone.

Counsilman-Hunsaker, in association with Westlake Reed Leskosky and Graham Gund Architects, were selected to design the 20,000 sq. ft. cutting-edge aquatic center.

Features of the natatorium include:

  • 25-yard competition pool with eight lap lanes
  • Diving well with 1-meter diving board
  • Instructional pool with support functions
  • Seating for 150 spectators

Hathaway Brown is one of a handful of girls’ prep schools in the nation with its own aquatic facility. An on-campus swimming pool allows the Hathaway Brown community to meet life-long fitness, health, and wellness needs.

In addition to meeting the school’s competitive swimming and diving programming objectives, therapeutic and cross-training needs are also fulfilled. The aquatic center provides for other educational and enrichment activities as well such as synchronized swimming, water polo, water aerobics, scuba diving, canoeing, and kayaking.
