    Open enrollment charter schools are state-supported educational institutions in Texas. Thus, these academies can be described as a state-supported, public, open enrollment charter high school in Texas. Combined, these schools have a maximum enrollment capacity of 2,600 students. Normally, all four schools reach an enrollment of approximately 80 percent of their maximum capacity by the end of the first six-weeks of each school year.

    Although the charter schools have become the corner stone of the organization, SAPI has also operated community-based dropout recovery and dropout prevention alternative educational programs since 1992. Again thank you for your expression of interest.
