Lexington Academy was a small private Christian school in Farmers Branch, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) that was founded in the early 1980s by televangelist Robert Tilton and his wife Marty. The name "Lexington" was chosen in honor of the Battle of Lexington. The school mascot was the Patriots. The school was a member of TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools), and won dozens of State Championships in Athletics, Academics, and Fine Arts during the less than 20 years of its existence, including 5 overall TAPPS State Championships. The school was dissolved in 1998 as a result of debts incurred from lawsuits against Tilton and his ministry.
