In 1911, the college was founded as a one-year normal school housed in rented space in nearby Lyndon Institute. The term "normal school" is based on the French école normale supérieure, a school to educate teachers. Consistent with education tradition of the times, the Lyndon Training Course expanded its curriculum in one-year increments, and the first two-year class graduated in 1923.
In addition to a range of Bachelor's Degree programs, the college offers Master's Degree programs in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Education, and Liberal Arts.
