Introduction. The variability of social guidelines of modern society determines the relevance of studying value orientations as an important moral component of the person. The purpose of the work is to study the value orientations of adolescents with different levels of anxiety. Theoretical analysis. The severity of anxiety in adolescents is related to the choice of certain value orientations. Adolescents with high levels of anxiety are more susceptible to the opinions of others and their value orientations are less stable and more useful. Empirical analysis. The study involved 48 adolescents aged 14 to 16 years. As a result of the study, it was revealed that for adolescents with high levels of anxiety, the choice of such value orientations as rest and material well-being is typical. Adolescents with moderate to low anxiety levels are more characterized by a focus on communication and love. Conclusion. Moderate and low levels of anxiety are associated with spiritual values that are independent of external factors. A high level of anxiety is associated with material and specific values, which depend on external factors and therefore are difficult to control.
