The purpose of the current study is to investigate the role of parental academic pressure perceived by adolescents attending different types of high schools in their conflicts with their parents. In the study employing the predictive correlational model, 751 students attending high schools were included as participants. The adolescent-parent conflict scale and the perceived parental academic pressure scale were administered to the participants in the study. The data obtained from the participants of the study were examined in separate groups as male (n=205) and female (n=546) adolescents and to include all the 751 participants. From the data obtained, first, normality assumptions were examined for all three groups (all participants, male and female adolescents) and Cronbach alpha reliability coefficients were calculated. For all three groups, measurement models were examined before the structural equation model (SEM) and then SEMs were conducted. According to the results obtained, all the models were significant and the academic pressure perceived by adolescents from their parents had a significant role in the adolescent-parent conflict in all three groups. The findings were discussed in light of the literature and some suggestions were made.
