Answer:

Your options to study abroad are quite limited before you have graduated from high school, and you would need your own funding to pay for your studies and living costs. The study abroad options available at your age usually lasts for a shorter period of time, they are primarily:

  • Language courses for juniors where you study at a foreign language school for a couple of weeks in the summer.

  • High School Exchange where you study for one year in an English speaking country and then go back to your home country.

To take all of your high school abroad you would need to move with your entire family or move to a relative living abroad. There are some boarding schools where you could do it on your own but they tend to be very expensive. So the best course of action is usually to finish high school in your home country and then look for study abroad options at university level.
