Technically, you are an adult at 18. Realistically, you are not at all an adult.
You live with your father. He gives you room and board. He can set rules. But once you are 18, you can do what you want, even make what sounds like a rather rash and poor decision that could impact your future.
You have the right to drop out of school at 16. Also, a bad idea you have a right to exercise.
I strongly encourage you to think about this very deeply. What may be exciting to you (a boyfriend in another state) at 17 is going to seem rather ugly in a few years. Growing up, supporting yourself, getting an education, all seem rather pedestrian, until you have to actually pay for your own things, run a household, get a job etc. Without a great education that teaches you proper grammar, and basics of how the world works, you have little chance to succeed. Again, think this through. Just because you CAN leave, doesn't mean you SHOULD. Talk to your dad. He loves you and cares for you. Make this work.
