The student’s involvement in studying are divided into 3 dimensions such as: dimensions of behavior, emotions, and cognitive. The engagement level of students toward their study behavior play important roles in their academic development. Upon research, it is believed that social supports including family, friends, and teachers do play important roles in affecting student engagement at schools. Moreover, student with tendency of high self-regulated behavior is mostly likely to be more engaged amongst students at schools as opposed to student with low tendency of self-regulated. This research aims to determine whether social support system and self-regulation affect the student engagement which had been tested in one of Jakarta’s Public High Schools. 100 students which consisted of both grade X and XI, majoring in Science and Social have been involved throughout the research. This research has also utilized a multiple regression of hypothesis test. The result showed that that there was an influence of social support and self-learning on student engagement.
