If you start skipping school in your senior year, that looks to a parent like a sign of irresponsibility, even immaturity---not following the rules, not following through on your obligations, not being self-disciplined, giving in to the temptation to slack off. Even if you continue to do well in school, it feels like a warning signal that this kid may not be ready to be responsible for herself once she's away at college.
