The Learning Institute of Texas (LIT) began as New Life Community Center providing English, Spanish and computer classes. LIT was birthed with a mission to help international students improve their English fluency. The Intensive English Program is designed to prepare students to communicate in both verbal and written expression so that they may excel in their academic or professional pursuits in the United States and other global communities. This community center later was granted an Incorporation Charter by the State of Texas as The Learning Institute of Texas on April 26, 2001.

On February 8, 2002 LIT was issued a 501 (c) 3 from the Internal Revenue Service and was recognized as a nonprofit institution.

On May 14, 2003 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (SEVIS) approved LIT to accept international (foreign) students from abroad by issuing I-20s.

LIT achieved it’s biggest milestone by being accredited by CEA (The Commission on English Language Program Accreditation) on April 22, 2013 in accordance with new U.S. laws.
