We want you to be part of that swimming community.


Swimming and Mercersburg are synonymous with excellence, stretching back more than a century.


About the Lloyd Aquatic Center

At 41,000 square feet, the Lloyd Aquatic Center is a gem on Mercersburg’s campus and among the premier aquatic centers in the Mid-Atlantic. The facility opened in 2019 and includes the Olympic-size 10-lane Furnary Pool with a diving area, locker rooms, seating for spectators, and offices. A system of movable bulkheads allows the 50-meter space to be transformed into two separate 25-yard courses, giving swimmers the opportunity to train and compete at both short-course and long-course distances. The pool holds 480,000 gallons of water.

The Lloyd Aquatic Center meets the criteria to host official USA Swimming and USA Diving events. At the same time, the facility allows for maximum flexibility and use by all members of the school community, from competitive swimmers and divers to athletic training and recovery workouts, kayaking and other instructional courses, and general fitness for students, faculty, staff, and the campus community.



Why Mercersburg for Swimming?

Competitive swimming and exceptional college preparation are at the core of who Mercersburg Academy is. Thirty-two Olympic swimmers have accomplished great things in the pool and in the classroom here.

Mercersburg student-athletes are clear in their purpose: they’re carving a path to selective colleges and exceptional athletic programs in the United States and abroad. The Academy has prepared accomplished U.S. and international swimmers; we’ve also helped seven Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel Laureate, and 54 Olympians develop the interests and abilities through which they found greatness.

At Mercersburg you can train throughout the school year with other dedicated athletes in the Lloyd Aquatic Center. You’ll also have full access to extensive fitness center and dry-land equipment. With an 8:1 swimmer-to-coach ratio, Mercersburg offers you the chance to build upon the tradition of 32 Olympian swimmers, countless high school All-Americans, Eastern Champions, and Sectional, Junior, and Senior National qualifiers.



“The Lloyd Aquatic Center signals our commitment to having the best program possible. You want to know that your school will support whatever you want to do—whether it’s a sport, the arts, or anything else. This facility is living proof of our commitment.”

—Head Swimming Coach Glenn Neufeld
