Lyon College, situated in Batesville, Arkansas, is a private liberal arts college that traces its heritage back to 1872, making it one of the oldest colleges in the state. Encompassing a suburban campus with distinct residential options, Lyon provides a close-knit educational environment, housing approximately 700 students, emphasizing small class sizes and a low faculty-to-student ratio. The college offers a range of undergraduate degrees, with programs in Business, Education, and Biology being particularly prominent. Lyon College is moderately selective in its admissions process, looking beyond quantitative metrics to assess applicants holistically. While the campus is not immediately adjacent to a major city, its location in North Central Arkansas offers access to outdoor recreation in the Ozarks and is within driving distance of Little Rock, the state's capital. Lyon does not distinctly emphasize intercollegiate athletics and is known more for its academic programs than its sports teams.

In the most recent statistical year 1,382 prospective students applied, and 827 were granted admission.  Of those admitted 146 enrolled in the school.  483 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 13 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $29,900 plus fees of $1,100.
