Any advice on this would be great, particularly because it's information that would be important to my family.
Thanks for your time!

Yeah, you can start off at a community college and work on your AA or AS and go into a university @18 as a junior. BS or BA by 20 if you play your cards right. I have friends that have done this and been happy with the outcome, it really depends on how you feel about high school. If you're ready to leave, why not do what fits you best. You are a young adult, you should be able to make adult decisions.
I did something like this except I was still enrolled in high school while I was going to college. The credit I was getting in college also applied to my high school credit. I still walked at high school graduation with my class. I also participated in high school events. I just took my classes at a college instead. I'm 21 now and almost done with my masters so it worked well for me.

If your looking for a university, you'll have to talk to them, but I'm guessing that most won't be too quick to let you in. There are special circumstances (if your really that smart), but most kids should just stay and finish up high school, taking higher level courses.

Just remember, the admissions are decided by each school based on a number of factors. Different ones may view younger applicants in different ways, and they may also judge the reasons why you left school early.
