Wishing you the best!
Jorge recommends the following next steps:
Hope all is well. Typically to open a checking account, banks ask that a person be 18 years of age. In this case, you can open an account with a parent and when you reach 18 you can change the account to have it as your own account.
As to which bank to choose, I recommend looking at banks that are easy to get to if you need to take money out. Remeber this is important as you go to college. Also, take a look at the different accounts to make sure you are not being charged fees for having the account / debit card. Many of the large / local banks have student accounts that are free.
I hope this helps and best of luck!
