    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.
