During college, many students start growing up and learning the finer points of how to care for themselves. For those with children, this task is doubled, in that parents must hold themselves up as adults and academics while imparting knowledge and taking care of a child.

These schools displayed below offer programs that can help alleviate some of the stressors of being a parent. Parents will find that many colleges and universities, particularly the ones that made the list, recognize the difficulties of paying for school while feeding a family, navigating course schedules around childcare openings and finding housing for both parent and child.
