This study was on the administrative capacity building needs of principals of public secondary schools in Enugu state, Nigeria. The study was guided by three research questions and two null hypotheses. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was 834, comprising of 278 principals and 556 vice principals in the 278 public secondary schools in Enugu state. The entire population was used for the study because of the manageable size of the population. There was therefore no sampling of the population. The instrument used for data collection was a 24 – item questionnaire titled Questionnaire on Administrative Capacity Building Needs of Principals (QACBNP). Mean scores and standard deviations were used in answering the research questions, while the z-test statistics was used in testing the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings indicated that the principals need administrative capacity building in student personnel administration, financial administration and school-community relations administration. Based on the findings, the researchers recommended that principals and vice principals should be exposed to regular conferences, seminars, and workshops on administrative proficiency, that teacher educational institutions should include administrative skills of school administrators in their curriculum, and that workshops and seminars should be organized for newly appointed principals in administrative proficiency needed by principals for effective school administration.
