The main research objective was to determine the effects of family socio economic status on the academic achievement of secondary school students’ in some selected secondary schools in the Limbe Municipality. From this research objective emerged four specific objectives. From the research objective a general research hypothesis was formulated from which four working hypotheses were drawn. The survey research design was used. A questionnaire and an interview guide were used for the collection of data and the simple random sampling technique was used to select the respondents. A sample of 297 respondents comprising secondary school students was selected and administered questionnaires while 50 parents whose children attend either of the selected schools were interviewed. Data was presented using frequency tables, charts, code-grounding-quotation tables and conceptual diagram. The study revealed that family socio-economic status has an impact on students’ motivation to learn. In order to improve students’ academic performance and reactions to life situations irrespective of their family backgrounds, the government and counsellors were advised to provide the necessary psychological support for students from different family backgrounds so as to overcome their emotional problems and improve academic achievement.
