Religiosity has been identified by many scholars as an important aspect in family process and interaction. However, the impact of parental religiosity on the development of adolescent social responsibility has rarely been studied especially in Banda Aceh.  To address this paucity, the study aimed to explore the relationship between parental religiosity and social responsibility among adolescents in Banda Aceh. A total of 331 adolescents aged between 11 to 18 years old from four high schools in Banda Aceh were selected using multistage cluster random sampling. Parental religiosity was measured using a scale that developed in this study based on dimensions of Islamic religiosity by Azimi et al. (2006), and social responsibility was assessed using Social and Personal Responsibility Scale that adapted from Conrad and Hedin (1981). Findings from correlation analysis showed parental religiosity had a significant and positive relationship with adolescent social responsibility (rmother=0.10, p<0.05; rfather=0.13, p<0.01).  The result of the study indicates that a higher score in parents' religiosity would also higher in adolescent social responsibility. It implies that adolescents who have religious parents tend to be a socially responsible person.
