The purpose of this study is to examine the associations among family cohesion, self-efficacy, and school adjustment in adolescence. This study investigated these interrelationships using structural equation modeling. The results indicated that family cohesion had effects on school adjustment both directly and indirectly through self-efficacy. The mediating effect of self-efficacy was statistically significant. These results imply that family cohesion and self-efficacy need to be emphasized as a strategy to improve school adjustment among adolescents.
