How to Attend School While Raising a Family

Posted on: March 29, 2012

Returning to school is a big decision, especially if you have the added challenge of raising a family. For many people, the decision is prompted by the need to find a new career and a better paying job. Accomplishing your educational dream can be fulfilling both in terms of what you learn and your increased earning potential. Both you and your family can benefit tremendously.

 Here are a few tips to help you find and maintain your balance:

  • Choose a flexible program – Will day classes interfere with your work schedule? Will night classes interfere with family time? Choose a program that best suits your schedule.
  • Create an activity chart – Plan your activities at home and in school and stick to the schedule so that you can make the best use of your time.
  • Let others know how much you value their support – People are usually supportive when they know their efforts are appreciated and will usually offer their help more readily.

At Everest, our goal is to make sure you get the support and training you need to succeed. And you can always talk to an instructor or chat with our Career Services department if you need help or additional information. We’ll help you find the balance that can help make raising a family and attending school doable.
