The below is true except for the homily at the end. Make no mistake, high school is a complete waste of time. As a dropout who went on to do everything that the writer below finds incomprehensible (GED, early marriage, etc.) I found that indeed one can attend college and achieve a very nice life without following the fear-bound traditional route. Of much more importance in your life than mindless "book learning" is a passion for knowledge and persistence to your goal. And the willingness to work hard (although hard work by itself accomplishes little--one must be focused). Good luck, try to see if you can do the GED route, and do expect to want to attend college after a couple of years in minimum wage.

In VA you are required to attend school until you're 18. In order to be exempt from this requirement, it has to be approved by the school board. There is a process to it, you can not just stop attending school. And *if* it is approved then you could be required to attend a GED program, receive career guidance counseling, receive counseling on the economic impact of failing to complete high school, etc. Let me just add studies have shown that most people who fail to complete high school, spend the rest of their lives working a minimum wage job and barely being able to pay their bills. Is that what you want for your life? Think long and hard about it.
