Feliciano O. Sapalo Jr.

Discipline: Education



The study aimed to determine what factors influenced the academic performance of the secondary students of Saint Michael College of Caraga. The study used the descriptive correlational research design with the use of a validated researcher-made instrument in gathering data and administered to the parents, teachers and student respondents. The independent variables considered in this study were two parts. Part I include parental factors as indicated by attendance in school activities, financial support, and assistance in school assignments. Part II includes school factors indicated by teaching strategies, administrative support, and school facilities. The statistical tools employed were the mean, Pearson-r moment correlation, and the step-wise regression analysis. The findings showed that parents’ attendance in school activities, financial support for school activities, and school facilities/equipment showed no significant relationship on students’ academic performance. Factors about teaching strategies, administrative support and parents’ assistance in students’ assignments directly determined the academic performance of the students.
