This quantitative study examined the influence of family, school, and peers on the educational aspirations of 60 urban African American male high school students attending two high schools in the Midwest. Participants completed an in-class survey that included demographic information as well as survey questions regarding educational aspirations, family, school, and peers. Three significant factors relating to educational aspirations of urban African American male high school students were discovered. The results of the regression analyses revealed that financial support and support from teachers, counselors, and peers were the significant predictors of educational aspirations of urban African American male high school students.
