This research was aimed to investigate the parents' perception of their involvement in mapping their children's English learning achievement amid the Covid-19 pandemic. A qualitative method was used in this research, and it employed a case study design. A questionnaire and interview were applied to collect the data. Ten parents of the eight grades would participate in the close-ended questionnaire given, and three of them would participate in the interview. The data were collected at a private Junior High School in Kupang City, East Nusa Tenggara. The data display (summarize and code) and concluding was used to analyze the data. The result of this research showed that parental involvement is very crucial to their children's learning achievement, especially English amid the Covid-19 pandemic. They believed that guiding, controlling, reminding, providing motivation, and checking children's English assignments would help the children's English achievement. The parents also helped the English teacher because the English teacher could know the children's activities by communicating with the parents. Parents also believed that being active in the Excellent Parenting Community (EPC) of online meetings program and parents-teacher WhatsApp chat group could help them acknowledge children's academic advance during learning from home. However, this research also gives a new insight into the importance of parental involvement to help students' learning achievement, especially amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
