Abstract: The objective of this study is to understand how religious socialisation may play a role in influencing the educational values of the young Jehovah’s Witnesses in Singapore, which in turn influences their higher education attainment choices. Some young Jehovah’s Witnesses continue to pursue secular university education in Singapore, despite strong advice given by the religious community. On the other hand, others do not though circumstances allow them to do so. Using religious socialisation as a theoretical framework, the study argues that religious socialisation continues to be gendered and patterns of intensive early socialisation can be observed in the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ families. Lastly, this research looks into the possible sources of agency demonstrated by young Jehovah’s Witnesses in their decision-making processes.
