Pennsylvania law requires that a minor must stay in school until 17. At age 17, a minor may leave school without permission from the school, or from the minor's parents or guardians. Also under Pennsylvania there is no law allowing minors to be emancipated from their parents before they reach 18 years of age. It does not matter if the minor is pregnant.
