The study on body image has been grown over the recent few decades. Previous studies have investigated body image effects on psycho-social functions. Based on this, the objective of the present study was to investigate the relationship among body image, adjustment and academic achievement of students. The research sample included 400 high school male and female students who were selected by cluster sampling. The required data was gathered using Physical Self-Description Questionnaire and Bell Adjustment Inventory. Also, the mean scores of students were used as an indicator of academic achievement. The data were analysed by descriptive and inferential statistics indicators. Results indicated that there is significant relationship between body image and adjustment, whereas there was not any significant relationship between body image and academic achievement. Also, the results showed that there is a significant difference in body image of male and female students. However, there was not any significant difference in adjustment of both male and female students. In general, findings demonstrated that positive body image increases adjustment and better adjustment with situation influences considerably the adolescents’ academic achievement.
