What are the pros and cons of graduating highschool early?

Hey guys my name is Zak. I'm 15 years old and I'm just finishing up my Sophomore year (10th grade). I'm a California dweller and I have plans for travel. The past few months I have transferred to an online home-school and I have come to the conclusion I'd really fancy to graduate early. I'm a man of many interests such as film, animals, psychology, and music. Personally I wasn't too fond of switching to home-school because of my tight nit family for peers and the fact my school specialized in the arts. It turns out that home-school was probably one of my best decisions. I'll be talking to my school mentor about working right through the summer. And shaving off an entire year would be ideal for me (I'd be 16 1/2years old and graduated. I see myself moving and spending that time working full time).

On the side note I'll be obtaining my car and work permits late May/ early June. I have saved up currently a bit over $1,600 from cutting hair ,grooming dogs, and pet-sitting for quite some time. And I have saved for my own car in which my mom owns currently ,but will be ready for me as soon as I get my license (8-9mo from now).

Well, that was extensive. But first off ill do cons, some people who graduate early just have nothing to do with themselves, can't get a full time job unless you know somebody that owns a shop, also most colleges won't accept you at such an early age. But pros, YOUR FREE! You can sleep in! Enjoy the days better, get a part time job, study more about the field of work you want to go to, like you said, you like the arts. So you would have more time to do what you love.

If you have the motivation to keep working through school and start going, keep going while the motivation is there. Socially it won't be the same as most people, but long as that doesn't bother you, you may really enjoy it. For as dating goes, worry about that when you complete all of your education
