This study seeks to examine how parental involvement impacts students’ literacy development at the adolescent level, as it pertains to seventh and eighth graders. I affirm that parental involvement inside and outside the classroom is a key factor in increasing academic success. Data was collected through questionnaires, direct observations, and teacher interviews. This study reveals that parental involvement still is prevalent at the adolescent level, only the emphasis tends to shift from an academic setting to a more social and athletic environment. The shift provides the opportunity to continue communication between the student, parent, and school while reinforcing the understated belief of students’ academic achievement.
