Three research questions and three null hypotheses guided the study. The study employed correlational research design. The sample of this study comprised of 733 SS1I students drawn from the population of the study using multi stage sampling techniques. The study was carried out using SSII students in public secondary schools in Enugu State. Two instruments were used for data collection of the study namely questionnaire titled Secondary School Students School Climate Questionnaire (SSSSCQ) and Secondary School Students Academic Adjustment Questionnaire (SSSAAQ). Cronbach Alpha formula was used to test the reliability of the instruments and they yielded reliability indexes of 0.98 and 0.78 respectively. The data for this study were collected through personal administration of the instruments by the researcher and with the help of six research assistants. In other to answer the research questions, this study employed means and standard deviation while Pearson Moment Correlation Coefficients was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study showed that there was significant relationship between school climate and academic adjustment. There is no significant relationship between gender and academic adjustment.
