As an 18 year old that is still in high school, can I move places and attend a new high school by myself? Financially, it is not a problem.

Call the school or the district you want to go to.

If you are legally emancipated from your parents (court order or injunction that they are giving up financial responsibility) or homeless, you can pretty much go to school in whatever district you make your residence in. Many schools will allow students to attend and pay tuition. Call the district where you would like to attend the school and ask if they take tuition paying students from other districts.

Why do you want to change schools? And why are your parents not allowing you to switch schools?

You definitely need to research it with respect to your own state. Parental obligations extend past 18 in many, if not most states, and termination of those obligations originates from numerous different milestones. Not sure if that would interfere with the plan.

You might want to consider discussing this with your school guidance counselor or social worker, who will be more familiar with local regulations.
