Heartlight is a Christian boarding school for troubled teens aged 13 to 18 in Texas, needing temporary removal from their homes due to teenage behavioral problems. Both boys and girls are cared for in separate housing units, schooled, counseled and mentored 24/7. The Heartlight campus is located in the beautiful Piney Woods region of East Texas, just 2 hours east of Dallas, on a 100 acre property.
The modern log houses deliver a peaceful setting. Each troubled teen is involved in daily therapeutic programs administered by our Christian counselors and staff. Heartlight has a high ratio of staff to residents, nearly a 1:1 ratio with up to 40 staff on campus for just 48 students. Students are under adult supervision at all times and are generally not free to roam the campus nor allowed to enter each other's homes. The average stay for young people at Heartlight is 9 to 12 months.
Heartlight is a non-denominational Christian ministry, and is not affiliated with any one church. Heartlight utilizes a Biblical counseling model that brings the message of Jesus Christ to the lives of residents in a non-threatening way.
Heartlight's showcase building is the new 11,000 square foot Conference Center which houses the Heartlight offices and provides a setting for counseling, programs, special meals, performances, and retreats. The modern log-exterior building located at the center of the campus adds to the overall relaxed atmosphere of Heartlight.
The beautiful Heartlight Main Campus includes 10 houses or cabins, 2 barns, the conference center, stocked fishing ponds, tennis/basketball courts, climbing facility, skateboard park, horse riding arena, swimming pool, frisbee course, softball field and horse corrals. The buildings are mostly newly built, well maintained and modern, though the campus is specifically designed to appear rustic and relaxed with the log cabin exteriors.
The Heartlight Lake House provides a restful place to hold programs during the warm summer months. Heartlight's extensive water sports program is enjoyed by all in a setting that allows a retreat from the intensity of the program on the Main Campus.
