No you don't need your parents permission to sign yourself out of school.

Since when you're 18 years of age your parents are really no longer legally responsible for your health and well being and you have a say over what you can do and want to do so yes you can sign yourself out of school at age 18.

You can also drop out of school at 18 so you don't legally have to go to school at age 18 although you really should because you need a high school diploma to get jobs and get by in this world.
