The present study is aimed to explore the Home Environment and the Academic Achievement which correlates self-concept in a sample of 300 Students. The results of the study revealed self-concept to be considerably positive and correlated with Academic Achievement. It reveals a significant positive relationship of Home Environment components - protectiveness, conformity, reward and nurturance with self-concept. It means that use of rewards and nurturance from parents should be done for positive self-concept among Students for development. The correlation of social isolation, deprivation of privileges and rejection components of Home Environment is significantly negative with self-concept among Students. It indicates that there should be less or no use of social isolation, deprivation of privileges, rejection and positive self-concept among students for development. The study has implications for educationists and parents as well.
