I know the feeling of having a phobia and lost on what to do. I think you should talk to your parents about it again because no matter how hard you try it wont just go away. Look at it this way, your almost done with school. Good luck

If you really have a school phobia ( which is the first time I hear of , did some extreme happen in school? ) then you should simply switch to self-study. Ask you principal ( you are 18 years old ) to sign you as self study, get teachers e-mails skypes and such and study. can't really think of any other way if you want to continue your education.

good luck.

Don't give up on yourself.  The "average"  way of things  and thinking are not for everyone.  So your fears are different than the average person.  Figure out what is important to you and go get it. You are old enough to get answers and make decisions, that's great, people will listen to you. If not, you're talking to the wrong people or to people that don't understand (it's not their fault).  Seek help and don't stop until you are happy with the results.  Try new things and someday you might be the one helping others with similar problems! : )
