In China, besides the government and schools, the family has attached increasing importance to the children’s education. It is the existence of family capital that plays a vital role in affecting students’ higher education to a certain extent. Through the research on family economic capital, family cultural capital, and family power capital respectively, this paper finds that the groups with disadvantaged family capital show an obvious imbalance in the quantity and quality of higher education. Family economic capital has a significant positive correlation with the quality and quantity of students’ higher education, and it also has a positive effect on their acquisition of high-quality resources in the process of higher education and the selectivity of post-graduation development. Family cultural capital also positively impacts students’ access to higher education. The influence of family power capital on students’ access to higher education does not show a significant correlation, but it still positively affects children's access to higher education.
