In general, at 16 you are considered to be a minor and therefore can not leave home without your parent's permission. I do, however, think that in South Carolina you can petition the court for early emancipation. *If* it's granted, then you'd be able to move out.

The age of majority in South Carolina is 18. Until then you are the responsibility of your parents. They determine where you live and much of what you can do.

If you leave home before the age of 18 without parental consent or being emancipated, then your parents can report you as a runaway. South Carolina

No, your parents could make you come back at 17. Until you turn 18 in South Carolina, they are responsible for you.
