My son has been living at his girlfriends house since November 2018, my son is very smart and handles himself like a grown up.  He doesn't seem to be going to school and I have informed school of situation.  The school did offer some help and have been trying to get a hold of my son.  My son states he doesn't belong at school, he feels out of place with other students.  He is not involved in any bad activity the moment  He has came by to visit and looks well and happy.

Explain to your son the importance of following a methodical education process that will better his future, even if he does not realize it right now.
Let him know that you love him, and miss him being around. Ask him why he feels the way that he does, and be sure to listen. Point out and acknowledge things that will not only make him feel good, but that will make him feel proud of himself.

Hello my dear,
I am not a parent but I was a teenager that lived away from home so maybe i could give you somthing that helped me when I was young. I dont know the situation but I didnt want to go home nor did I want to go to school. I remember looking back now that it was just teenage hormones (I'm also a girl) and just wished that my parents would take me away from everything for a bit. Maybe hes stressed out over stuff that you couldn't imagine but maybe try and take him away from everything for a few days let him have fun and know that your proud of him. I understand that money is a problem somtimes so if you can take him to do anything different and try not to talk about school just for a few days he will probably want to come back home. Maybe its pressure maybe its somthing random or maybe its just him. The case is different with everyone but I know that if my mom would of just pretended to be my friend just for a few days and not talk about school or where I'm living or adult stuff but help me feel better just for second I would of came back home.  Somtimes you need a friend just for a day or two without the stress of a parent breathing down your back about school and living situations. I hope you understood what I was trying to tell you its just very hard to put it into words. Everyone is different and just know that no matter what he will be fine and your doing an amazing job.

This age is a tough one, not a man yet, but growing out of being a boy,, so a young man.  All you can do is tell him you love him, and that your door will always be open to him, and you hope and pray that some day, he will feel like returning to where he is loved and cared for, and you can certainly pray for him.  HE is still a minor, well at least here in NC, if you decide to seek help, but if you MAKE him, will only add to his anger and independence escape he thinks he needs, the good news, usually at his age, his girlfriend or he usually decides to move on, right, and there goes his place to stay, and home sweet home beats homeless.  If he does come home, expect him demanding more say in his life, so you may have to give and take some,, just a suggestion.  I have mentored many kids this age, hopefully, time and prayers will do the trick, perhaps start having a weekly dinner for him and his girlfriend,, just an idea,   GOOD LUCK
