This study examined parental involvement as predictors of adolescents’ academic performance in Bariga local Council Development Area. The descriptive research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study consisted of all Senior Secondary School Students in Bariga Local Council Development Area. A total of 200 adolescents were drawn from four public schools randomly selected from Bariga LCDA in Education district IV of Lagos State. Two instruments was used to generate data. They are ‘Parental Involvement as Predictors of Academic Performance of Adolescents Questionnaire’ (PIPAPAQ) and English Language Achievement Tests (ELAT). Three hypotheses were formulated and tested to guide the study, and all was rejected at 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that parenting style, parents- initiated teaching and parental contributions (in terms of finance, intellectual prowess, etc.) had no significant influence on adolescent’s academic performance. The study thus recommends that in situations where parents seems to be evasive, an experienced home lesson teacher should be employed to monitor and as well influence the progress report of students’ performance. In addition, parents needs to device strategies that will help them have quality time to look into the school-related matters of their children for better academic performance.
