you need to decide if you really want to leave the family for that time or mature for the big move. It may not be easy. You need to do studies on different areas where you would potentially go to school, what major are you looking at, does the school of interest have that major. Ultimately it is a huge decision on you and your families part time and $$ wise.
Start contacting coaches now to talk to them about training and commitment to team compared to studies etc....
