This study sought to examine family type and academic performance among secondary school students in Shomolu Local Government Area of Lagos State. It looks at variables such as gender of single parent, divorce, parental separation and step parent family as factors influencing academic performance among secondary school students. The study further examined existing literature of various scholars; three theories were used to explain family size and academic performance. The theories adopted were attachment theory, structural functionalism and ecological systems theory. The quantitative method was used, and the sampling method used was the probability sampling technique. Specifically, the multi-stage sampling technique adopted was the survey method. The research instrument used was the questionnaire and a sample size of 285 respondents was selected. 240 respondents were proposed for the study. The respondents were male and female secondary school students of Shomolu Local Government Area of Lagos State.
