|The school leaders’ major challenge is to increase or sustain enrollment of the institution for the financial stability of the institution. Hence, they have to know how students make a choice of the institution and who influences their decision. The purpose of this study was to get better understanding on the school choice process of grade 11 students and analyze the factors and influencers during the process. There has been some research done at the undergraduate level regarding college choice. However, for grade eleven, college choice studies cannot be found in the Nepali context. This study is based on the model of Hossler and Gallager College Choice (1987). The study used a survey method. Through the proportionate simple random sampling, 329 samples were taken from the 2247 learners from 14 different secondary ii schools. These samples were collected from secondary-level students from 14 different schools in Lalitpur Metropolitan City. The data were collected through the structured questionnaire. Additionally, mean, graph, bar chart, normality test and Mann Whity U test were used to analyze the quantitative data. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 25 software was used to explore descriptive and inferential analysis. The findings from the data analysis of this study support the literature, theories and personal reflection. The findings of the study showed that students considered the usefulness of the degree for further studies, tuition classes, extracurricular activities, hostel/ accommodation facility, full-time faculties and library as the important factor for the school selection. The friends intending to study grade 11, grade 11 faculties and grade 10 counselors, faculties and friends studying in class 11 make a significant difference in the school selection. For the student choosing the new school,a strict admission procedure is important. For students choosing the same institution, school promoting good values and degree’s usefulness for further studies are important. Gender of the student and where they have passed SEE made a difference in the school selection. The findings and results of the study can be useful for education leaders, administrators, other stakeholders of the school and policy makers
