Abstract: Guidance and counselling services in secondary school play a major role in school adjustment of students and the subsequent achievement of their full potential. The purpose of this research was to investigate secondary school students perceptions of the influence of guidance and counselling services on their academic adjustment. The research adopted a mixed approach research methodology and the ex post-facto causal comparative research design. The philosophical paradigm on which the research was based is pragmatism. The geographical locale of the research was Keiyo Sub-county. The research established that there were significant differences in students perceptions of the influence of guidance and counselling services on academic adjustment in secondary schools. It is recommended that since there exist significant differences in students perceptions of the influence of guidance and counselling services on their academic adjustment, there is need to address the challenges and shortcomings that exist in the guidance and counselling provision in the schools so that all the students are adequately assisted to make the desired academic adjustment.
