This survey - correlational study attempted to determine the level of school head's sense of efficacy and climate among schools in Iloilo City and their relationship as a whole and when grouped according to sectarian, non ' sectarian, elementary, secondary or both elementary and secondary levels. The respondents of the study were the 30 principals of established private schools and 150 selected faculty. The selection of the principals was done purposively while the faculty was randomly selected. The researcher adapted two instruments: the Principal's Sense of Efficacy Scale developed by Tschannen ' Moran, et al. (2001) which was answered by the selected principals and faculty to determine the level of school head's sense of efficacy; and the Organizational Climate Descriptive Questionnaire for Elementary Schools (OCDQ-RE) developed by Hoy, Tarter, and Kottkamp (1991) was used to determine the climate among private schools in Iloilo City to be answered by both selected principals and faculty.The use of frequency, mean,standard deviation,the Independent sample t-test, One-way ANOVA, and Pearson-r were utilized for the data analyses.The study revealed that level of school heads' sense of efficacy among private schools in Iloilo City is HIGH and the existing climate is OPEN and was attributed to the awareness of the principals of their responsibility and accountability to demonstrate school effectiveness and promote the schools shared values in creating a conducive climate. Likewise, there is a significant relationship between school heads' sense of efficacy and school climate among private schools as affirmed by the results.
