I live in a children's home but they don't have technical custody of me. Meaning that when I leave the children's home to go to college they will no longer have ties with me and I will be back in the custody of my mom. She will only let me go to one college, and that college will run me 120,000 after four years. the Christian college I want to go to has given me a lot a lot a lot of money and I will be out 44,000$ at the end of four years. she doesn't approve because it's not the one college she wants me to go to. again, I am 17...can I go anyway legally? what are the consequences for if I do go anyway?
If your mom does not agree, find out if the college will defer admission and the scholarship for a semester or year. Or ask your mom if she will cover the difference in cost.

You need an attorney. Be prepared to tell them why you are in the children's home and to get them your current custody order. Look at Chapter 31 of the Texas Family Code.
