Abstract

The study of school climate has gained increased attention over the past 25 years, with research indicating significant relationships between school climate and a number of social, emotional and academic outcomes for students. An aspect of school climate that has seen little attention, however, is the relationship between the development of faith and positive school climate. This study analyses data from 368 students in one faith-based school in Australia, utilising self-reported measures of school climate and faith engagement. A significant relationship is found between these variables, indicating the potential impact that school climate and faith engagement may have on each other. The study discusses the implications of these findings and makes suggestions in relation to the strengthening of these two areas within faith-based schools.
