Students’ academic gain and learning performance is affected by numerous factors including gender, age, self-concept peer group, level of ability, method of teaching, teachers’ personal characteristics, interest in the subject, classroom, environment, psychological environment, residential area of students’ social and economic background, and many others.

Many researchers conducted detailed studies about the factors contributing to students performance at different study levels Graet (1995) suggested “A student’s educational success is contingent heavily on social status of student’s parents/guardians in the. “Considine and Zappala (2002) noticed that parents’ income or social status positively affects the student test score in examinations.

In Akwa Ibom State, academic performance of students is very important to students, parents, teachers and other stakeholders. Like in other places where students are found, students in Akwa Ibom State also share the effect of the above factors influencing academic performance. These factors either have positive or negative influence on their academic performance. The researcher having given careful consideration to all these factors and discovered that some are dependent on others concluded that, the social and economic status of parents and guardians are very important factors. It is against this background that the evaluation of impact of socio-economic background of students on their academic performance becomes absolutely imperative. It is aimed at investigating the possibility of parental socio-economic background playing a significant role on students’ academic performance taking some selected secondary schools in Uyo Local Government Area.
