It is set to the following variables: achievement showcasing, awarding scheme, and video presentation of students’ activities for the entire school year 2020–2021. The study utilizes a quantitative experimental research design and uses a survey questionnaire and summative test in MAPEH 8 to determine the significant effects of the Parental Involvement Strategy (PIS) on academic performance in MAPEH 8. Purposive sampling was done and it includes thirty-six (36) Grade 8 students and their parents. A letter of consent was first floated to all the participants. A weighted mean and a t-test for dependent means were used to analyze the data. It was found that the introduction of the Parental Involvement Strategy (PIS) is an effective new normal strategy to increase students’ academic performance. The Parental Involvement Strategy (PIS) significantly validates its positive effects in increasing students’ academic performance in MAPEH.
