As one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the South, Lyon strives to create a learning environment that is not only academically challenging, but one that is indicative of building character and integrity.
Lyon believes the character built by our students is just as important, if not more important, throughout life than the degree that is earned. Lyon's academic curriculum is designed to develop character as well as intellect; it's intended to prepare you for a lifetime of personal growth, professional fulfillment and service. Lyon graduates are sought by employers and welcomed by graduate and professional schools. For example, our medical and law school admission rates are more than 90 percent.
