The purpose of this study was to school counselling as a function of students’ academic engagement in selected secondary schools in the North West region of Cameroon.

Students’ academic disengagement becomes a serious issue as it prevents educational institutions from achieving educational quality and attaining stated objectives as well. It will further prevent students from fully participating in development processes of the society as many fail, stagnant and drop of the system. This work is based on the hypothetical premise that school counselling has a significant effect on students’ engagement in the secondary school. The study used data collected from school counsellors and students of secondary school; and simple random, and purposeful sampling techniques were used to obtain a sample size of 123 counsellors and 543 teachers of government secondary schools in the North West region of Cameroon. The quantitative approach was employed in data collection and analysis. In the quantitative approach, we constructed a questionnaire . Data collected was analyzed using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS); and the following results were obtained in relation to the hypotheses of the study.

  1. Counsellor’s professional competences affect students’ engagements in the secondary school(p-value < 0.05)
  2. The quality of Counsellor /student relationship affects students’ engagements in the secondary school(p-value < 0.05)

Based on these results recommendations were made to education stakeholders.
