Effective and goal-oriented administration as the hallmark for academic excellence is the focus of this paper.

Administration of schools must seek to produce quality graduates with employability skills and sustainable alacrity through effective and efficient instructional delivery and students' discipline. The paper examined the need for proper secondary school administration, the challenges of secondary school administration, and recommended the way forward to achieving a better standard of academic excellence.
