This research aimed to find the correlation between academic buoyancy and career adaptability in 9th-grade students. In Indonesia, 9th grade students are about to face a career transition as they soon will be graduated and enter the high school. During this transition, students are expected to have prepared for and adapt to imminent and future changes and challenges in their career. In order to successfully dealing with the transition, firstly they need to overcome every change and challenges that mostly arise at school in an academic setting. To this point, a term that reflects students’ ability to deal with academic challenges, setbacks, and difficulties is academic buoyancy. In this research, Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS) developed by Savickas and Porfeli (2012) and Academic Buoyancy original scale from Martin and Marsh (2008) that has been developed by Nurafifah (2011) were administered to 597 students on the 9th grade from two public schools. Pearson Product Moment Correlation data analysis shows that there is a strong, positive and significant correlation between academic buoyancy and career adaptability (r =.535; p <.001). This result indicates that the higher the academic buoyancy of the students, the higher their career adaptability will be.
