I'm helping a family friend with his resume - how to best present his GED and homeschooled background?

I'm helping a family friend work on his resume. He was raised by very religious parents who made the decision to homeschool him. He obtained his GED upon completing his studies at home. He has had some job experience (retail and restaurant type things) but now that he's relocated from his small town to the big city, he is sprucing up his resume. What should he say about his educational background? That he has his GED? That he was homeschooled? Neither? Both? Does GED look worse than having an HS diploma? Should he mention anything specific?
Anticipating possible areas for clarification/satisfying the curious:
He's not applying for anything overly ambitious - a better quality of job yes but he's not being cocky.
He has not yet pursued any higher education.
He is very bright, talented, and personable.
He is not himself fundamentalist/super conservative. (thus explaining his affiliation with the Stick family)
