Social environmental factors combine to influence the consequences of student dropout. Completion of school or graduation depends on the interaction of certain factors within the family, school, and social. This study has identified the student’s characteristics and social environmental factors of student dropout. The characteristics related to gender, grade, and ethnicity. The factors of interest are related to the family, school, and social in the involvement of student dropout from lower secondary school. This study’s finding has positively demonstrated that institutions of the social environment play a significant role in the academic future of the student. Even though Sri Lanka has one of the highest literacy rates among the developing countries in Asia, the student dropout rate is still high. Thus, it is hoped that this study will be a stepping-stone to more studies in this issue and for the education and economic policymakers to come up with a workable solution to bring Sri Lanka to be at par with other developing and developed countries in terms of education and economy.
