Perceptual Learning styles are different ways in which people process the information in the course of learning, intimately involved in producing more effective response stimuli. The objective of the study was to find out the correlation between the variables of Perceptual learning style in total and with its dimensions to Academic achievement. Population of the study includes all students studying in High Schools of Kanyakumari District. Samples of the study were 328 students who were studying in various High Schools located in Kanyakumari District. The tool adopted here was "The Learning Styles Scale" developed by the Investigator herself. Statistical techniques involved here were "t-test" and Pearson's Product Moment coefficient of correlation". The findings of the study revealed that, perceptual styles of learning were greater for Female and Tamil medium students than that of their counterparts. Also from correlation, it was revealed that, the perceptual learning styles have a high correlation with the academic achievement of students. So, educators need to recognize different modes of learning and had to adopt different approaches to teaching, that enable students to adopt different learning styles to learn effectively. This means that, teaching needs to be designed to include different learning opportunities and appropriate assessments to ensure that, the learning is accessible to the largest number of students. The teachers must be persons who are capable for applying a mix of teaching approaches to the classroom and in planning the learning opportunities for students which should benefit the maximum numbers of students, thereby develop our Mother India.
