Abstract: This study aimed to find out non-academic factors influencing junior secondary school students' achievements. The sample for this study was Year 9 students of Islamic junior secondary schools or madrasahs across the country. Data on students' achievement was taken from the results of the students' scores in their national examination which cover the score of Mathematics, Science, the Indonesian language and English subjects; while data on non-academic factors was collected by using a set of rating-scaled questionnaires. Findings of the study showed that the variable of students' gender and age influenced their achievement together with grade repetition, resources at home, parent's education and expected level of education attainment, number of school resources, the condition of schools' facilities, number of lesson per week for a subject, qualification of the teachers, teachers' lesson plan and assessment plan, and teachers' and principals' feedback on lessons.
