Exponential growth of academic competitiveness has brought out the dire needs of Parental support. School education cannot visualise the all objectives of education until it sought parental support. Thus, parental support has become the crux of modern school education. The present study aims to explore the relationship as well as difference between academic achievements of high and low parental support groups of male and female secondary school students. The study is hypothesised as there will be no relationship and difference between academic achievements of high and low parental support groups of male and female secondary school students. A sample size of 205 (Male & Female) secondary school students was drawn from four secondary schools of Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh (U.P.) India. Non-probability purposive sampling was employed to draw the required sample. Mean. SD, Pearson Correlation and t- test was calculated for the analysis of data. Findings revealed the positive significant relationship as well as no significant difference between academic achievements and parental support of secondary school students. Findings are interpreted in terms of educational implications and need for further research is also suggested.
