The Walter C. Johnson Center for Health and Wellness houses Hackley School’s physical education and athletics programs, as well as the school’s growing wellness programs, including mindfulness and meditation practices, nutrition education and yoga.

The state-of-the-art complex includes a natatorium featuring an eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool, a video-matrix scoreboard, an elevated seating gallery for 100 spectators, and electrochromic glass windows on the three exterior walls allowing for automated tinting depending on the time of day. This results in an abundance of natural light while minimizing the amount of water surface glare.

The facility also houses a cardio fitness center, three basketball courts, eight squash courts, a fencing studio, a wrestling room, a free weights room, a modified indoor track, three classrooms, a wellness studio, a teaching kitchen, a concessions stand, locker rooms, office space and common areas.
