Effective interpersonal relationship requires individual with healthy and balanced personal characteristics. One activity which is developed by an individual in his adolescence is building peer relationship. Positive peer relationship results in academic achievement, while negative peer group relationship creates problems in behavioral patterns. Behavioral problems which are found in adolescence are mostly fights, drug abuse, free sex, and other juvenile delinquencies. It is hoped that positive peer relationship will help preventing individual into juvenile delinquency. This paper explains the role of peer group in social control of juvenile delinquency of students. Case study employing qualitative approach was chosen as the design of the study. Direct interview with some informants became primary data of the data collection method. Moreover, secondary data was taken from school journals and other reliable sources. Findings of the study showed that there were different roles of peer groups in controlling juvenile delinquency from other social controls generally; one reason was due to the educational system which employed Islamic Boarding School system and was oriented towards religious values as well as the sunnah of prophets in creating social solidarity in the peer group as an effort of building social control of juvenile delinquency. Social control of juvenile delinquency built by the peer group was done preventively by preventing such deviant behavior to emerge; and persuasively by persuading others to avoid any restrictions. It can be concluded, then, that peer group has active and positive roles in social control of juvenile delinquency of students.
