How do you go about requesting high school transcripts from a private school that no longer exists?

My boyfriend is looking to enroll in community college in spring to get started on his gen eds for nursing school. We've done the application and the FAFSA, but upon fishing to get a copy of his transcripts, we found that the school he recieved his HS diploma from no longer exists. We contacted the county office (Broward County, Florida) and they politely explained that they only have access to public school info. All contact info for the now defunct school (Academy Senior High, Davie) leads to nowhere.
He did a few years in the military right after graduation (this was around a decade ago) but was administratively discharged before the end of his stint. Would it be adviseable to contact the military for his records? Would they perhaps have any official details concerning his high school record?
He's left messages for family members but has yet to hear back. Is it possible that a copy of his old diploma is worth begging his folks to dig for? Does a diploma (as oppposed to transcripts) even matter when it comes to college applications? As a final detail, he's looking to enroll in a City College of Chicago. He's also banking on some amount of federal financial aid.
Any thoughts? Any one had any experience with Academy Senior High since it closed?
