  • Quitting School in Virginia Virginia

    At what age can you drop out of school in Virginia. My nephew is 16 (he's gonna be 17 next week) and wants to drop out. The whole family is against it and we've tried to talk him out of it; but he just won't go to school. Is there ANYTHING his Mom can do about it?

    She can ground him. Take away any computers, phones, cars and anything else he may be finding more important than schoolwork. His parents are the law until he is 18 years of age.

    VA is very against children dropping out of school. Only under very certain conditions could he do so and he would need parental consent and the consent of the school. He would also need to prove that he is attending a GED program in order to graduate.
