Parental involvement in school settings has been associated with a number of positive outcomes. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between parental involvement and academic performance, socialization, and coping behavior of students at St. Louis High School in Natore, Bangladesh. Data was collated from the accomplished student questionnaires of tenth-grade students (N=86), their parents (N=86) and teachers (N=10). The data were processed to investigate the relationship between the predictor variable and the criterion variables. This study employed a simple linear regression analysis. The significance of the study is defined by the influence of parental involvement and values for much more effective academic performance, socialization, and coping behaviour of the students. The significant findings of the study reveal that parental involvement and students’ socialization are important and necessary for the well-being of the students. However, academic performance and coping behavior did not factor much in parental involvement.
