What can I do?

If you would like him to go to college and not worry about a potential suit against the high school - There will be GED prep classes offered at your local community college. He will need to enroll in one of those classes and pass the GED exam at the end of the course. Although the GED test represents less of a time commitment than a high school diploma, it's not academically easier. The test is graded on an equivalency scale compared to current high school students. To pass, test takers must perform on a level comparable to or above 60% of high school seniors.

After passing the exam - he can apply to colleges just like he graduated high school. There is no difference in the eyes of a college recruiter.
