  1. You won't be charged as a "runaway." If you miss school, you may face truancy charges. If you move out, you may lose certain rights to support. Why not hold out a little bit longer -- until you graduate and until you're 18...it will make life a lot easier, and you'll feel much more comfortable with your decision.
    Good luck.
