Ok there is a couple of routes you can go.

First off,
What part of Game Design and Development do you want to go into?
There is Game Art and Design, Sound Production, Programming, etc...

Secondly, In my opinion Tech schools are nice, but they will not give you a rounded education like a normal college will. It just depends on your style and expertise. Some people cannot handle a regular college. Sometimes I can't lol I hate sitting in classes that in the end don't really help me get closer to my career path but I do because it will help me get my degree.

No matter what, I would try to take Drawing classes and maybe some Calculus.

If you go Computer Science route
Take:
Calculus
Physics
Any other type of Math or Science course will help you get into a college

If you go the Art Side
Take:
Anatomy
Life Drawing
Line Art
Graphic Design

If you go the Sound side
Take:
Music theory
Chorus
Band
Anything ... music

In the end I hope this helps
