Yvette, there are loans for practically every school as long as you have the credit needed to get them. Just a suggestion, I would check out ROTC programs through his school, or even an after school activity.
When I was in High School I joined a program where we went to local schools and helped children with disabilities, and that definitely kept me out of trouble.
Let me know how it goes! I wish you the best of luck, and if you want to talk more just let me know.
