Abstract Adjustment is a key component of a fulfilling and prosperous life. Achieving a balanced level of life becomes essential as we progress through life to reach a level of equilibrium of adjustment in all spheres of our lives. This holds particular significance during the student years generally and in residential settings particularly, when adjustment patterns can have a substantial influence on educational outcomes. Therefore, the current study aimed to examine the gender difference in social, emotional, and educational adjustment and its combined effect on academic achievement among boys and girls residential school students. Random sampling was used in this study with a sample size of 120 residential school students (60 boys and 60 girls), further divided based on levels of high (30 boys and 30 girls) and low (30 boys and 30 girls) adjustment patterns, studying in 11th and 12th grade at Akal Academy, Baru Sahib. The data were collected by administering an Adjustment inventory (Sinha and Singh, 1971), and GPA for obtaining academic achievement scores. Multiple Linear Regression and the ‘t' test were used to analyze the data. The findings show that boys outperformed their female counterparts in terms of social adjustment. However, there was no significant difference among boys and girls in emotional and educational adjustment. Additionally, the combined effect of social, emotional, and educational adjustment did not significantly impact academic achievement. These nuanced findings throw light on the complex interplay of adjustment patterns and suggest further investigation into its varied impact on academic achievement.
