The research method used in the study was descriptive-correlational design with 197 randomly selected ninth grader parent-respondents.

The parental involvement typology with the greatest relationship in the students’ academic achievement in Science and Technology 9 was the involvement of parents at school (Type 3). However, result showed slight correlation based on the degree of relationship between parents and school. This was followed by collaboration and exchange with community organizations (Type 6), and involvement of parents in decision-making, governance, and advocacy (Type 5). Type 1 which was the basic obligation of parents at home had the least relationship with the students’ academic achievement in Science and Technology 9.
