Theoretical constructs fundamental to this paper – individual resiliency, family resilience, and school adjustment – are presented. Individual resilience has been operationalized with the use of three indicators: positive self-concept, social and emotional competence, and self-control/self-regulation. Family resilience was measured with a one-dimensional scale describing integration and educational functionality of a family. School adjustment was measured with the use of three indicators: school-related stress, success at school, and assertiveness at school. 130 students aged 17–18 constituted the sample. Path analysis proved that family resiliency can influence school adjustment directly as well as through individual resilience.
