Admission Requirements

Westlake Academy is an open enrollment college preparatory charter school, which is owned and operated by the Town of Westlake.  This means that we are a public school, funded primarily through contributions from the State of Texas.  Charter schools are granted freedom from many of the State regulations, but still must maintain accountability through State assessments. 

As an open enrollment charter school, the only requirement for admittance into the Academy is based upon student residency. Westlake Academy admits students from two distinct geographic areas called "primary" and "secondary" boundaries:
