Lexington College was a women's college with a Catholic inspiration located in Chicago, Illinois. The curriculum was focused entirely on hospitality management studies. As of 2006, the college had 56 students[1] and a student-to-faculty ratio of 7:1.[2]

All students graduating from Lexington received either the Bachelor of Applied Science or the Associate of Applied Science. Students could major in Hospitality Management with a concentration in culinary arts, hotel/restaurant management, event planning, or health care and wellness. Students had to complete one (A.A.S.) or two (B.A.S.) internships while attending Lexington in order to receive their degrees. The programs as well as the college were accredited by The Higher Learning Commission.[3]

In May 2014, the President of Lexington College posted the following message on the college website: "DEAR FRIENDS OF LEXINGTON COLLEGE, It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that the governing Boards of Lexington College have decided to close the College at the end of this academic year. This decision was made after careful consideration of all possible alternatives, and with great concern for all of those who will be affected.

All of us in the Lexington community are proud of our college: the combination of a beautiful mission, years of dedication and quality professional work on the part of our founders and their successors, and the special and valued contribution of each one of you. We thank you for being a part of Lexington and are grateful for your support as we bring this stage of our rich history to completion."
