Can a minor self-enroll herself into high school without being legally declared emancipated for her mother?

Lexington, SC |

I am currently a minor (17 years of age) living in SC and have recently moved out of my mother's house into my grandmother's. She (mother) allowed me and even encouraged me to leave, seeing as how we have a strained relationship, but by doing so she also told me that I have to take complete responsibility over myself, concerning school and health-wise. I've done some research but all the results seem to point to being emancipated, something I know my mother with never agree to.
