The study developed teenager quality index (TQI) and analyze the effect of TQI to their academic achievement. TQI consist of three indicators, such as body mass index (physical dimension), intelligent quotient, and emotional intelligent (non physical dimension). The study employed a cross sectional design survey involving 300 junior high school students public and private schools at five purposively selected subdistricts of Banyumas. The result indicates that about 21.0% of students considered to have a low and very low index of TQI. Meanwhile, the proportion of students, who have high index is about 7.7%.
