Notes: Lea College was a private liberal arts college that operated from 1966 to 1973 in Albert Lea, Minnesota.

Lea College was one of several Midwestern colleges established by local civic leaders with the support and encouragement of Parsons College in Fairfield, Iowa. These Parsons "satellite schools" were by-products of the strong growth and apparent success of Parsons during the late 1950s and early 1960s, and all followed the "Parsons Plan" academic model developed at that school.

None of the schools, however, was ultimately successful.
