Fox College - Bedford Park, IL


History of Success.

Fox College traces its history back to 1932 when Earl B. Fox, an educator and former high school principal, founded the school. It was Mr. Fox's vision to have a relatively small, exclusive school dedicated to producing the very best executive and legal assistants. Mr. Fox accepted ambitious and motivated high school graduates and college students from the Chicago metropolitan area. 

Extremely high standards were maintained in a highly specialized program that included traditional academic subjects, as well as courses intended to facilitate personal development. Graduates thus have possessed both strong workplace skills and a strong sense of direction, maturity, and confidence. 

Just as the workplace, community, and society have undergone change, so has the direction of Fox College. While the philosophy of high standards and educational challenge has remained the same, programs and curricula have and will continue to evolve. Significantly, Fox College has joined the higher education community in its challenge to prepare students to compete in the global economy of today and tomorrow.
