The purpose of this study was to investigate the structural relationship among peer attachment, ego-identity, career identity, and school adjustment in middle school students. Data from the 2012 Korean Children and Youth Panel Survey was analyzed through Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The results indicated that the model is appropriate in terms of goodness-of-fit and path significance based on the validation procedure. The results of the study showed that one exogenous (peer attachment) and two endogenous (ego-identity, career identity) variables had direct and indirect influences on middle school students' school adjustment via five pathways, and that the predictive power for the total variance of school adjustment was 42%. For the total effect, the most contributive variable to their school adjustment was peer attachment, followed by ego-identity, and career identity. The findings of the study provide a basic framework for the structural understanding of middle school students' school adjustment, and for the development of the intervention strategies to improve the middle school students' school adjustment.
