Hey Landon!  I had a similar concern when I wsa in high school but at the time, resources were not really available online like they are now so I had to count on going to college to learn about animation. But fortujnately for you, there are thousands of website out there that can give you a head start.  I would begin with determining whether you want to be a hand drawn animator or 3d animator. Based on that, you either start learning Maya, or start learning to draw.  It won't hurt to draw a lot either way though.  It will help with both 2d and 3d animation.  Start a sketch book, draw everything, and do lots of life drawing.  And then, start playing around with animation. Buy a cintiq or ipad pro and use one of the simple animation programs out there to animate some simple tests. And I think you'll find that this website will be an invaluable resource for you to network and learn more about animation. Share with other members and get feedback on your tests. 
Good luck!
