The study examined the effects of households’ socio-economic variables on junior secondary school students’ academic performance in CCA in University of Maiduguri Demonstration Secondary School and El-Kanemi Islamic College of Theology, Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Survey and ex-post facto research design work was used to collect data on student socio-economic background and their academic performance respectively. Using stratified and purposive sampling techniques, 510 students and 5 CCA’s teachers were selected. Structured questionnaires were used for data collection. Therefore, a total of 515 respondents formed the sample of the study. The data were analysed using inferential statistics to determine the effects of households’ socio-economic variables on students’ academic performance. Results from the study showed that households’ socio-economic variables have significant effect on students’ academic performance in CCA in University of Maiduguri Demonstration Secondary School and El-Kanemi Islamic College of Theology. Therefore, the researchers recommended that government should provide some incentives that will encourage more students to enroll for formal education, such as scholarships, provide free transportation to school for students, establish schools for adult education and encourage couples to imbibe family planning.
