Introduction: The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between perfectionism and resilience by the mediating role of students’ academic adjustment. 
Objectives: This was a descriptive, correlational, and path analysis study.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population consisted of all male high-school students in Bandar-e Langeh City, Iran, in the 2017-2018 academic year (N= about 1300). Using a multistage cluster sampling method, and Morgan and Krejcie’s Table, 400 individuals were selected. The data-gathering instruments were Ahvaz Perfectionism Scale, Resilience Scale, and Academic Adjustment Inventory for high school students. A path analysis was used to analyze the obtained data by SPSS and LISREL. 
Results: The present study findings suggested that perfectionism decreased the investigated students’ resilience (B=-0.21, P<0.0001). Moreover, an educational adjustment had a mediating role between perfectionism and resilience (B=-0.24, P<0.0001). Besides, changes in the variance of resilience scores with the mediation of academic compatibility could be explained by perfectionism among the studied students (P<0.001). 
Conclusion: The obtained data suggested that planning to improve students’ academic adaptability could play an essential role in increasing resilience by reducing the negative impact of their perfectionism.
