The main purpose of this research was to study the relationship between adversity quotient (AQ) and self-empowerment of lower secondary grade students in schools under the jurisdiction of the Office of the Basic Education Commission. The sample of this study included 400 students. To collect data, check lists were used, as well as structured questionnaires regarding self-empowerment and AQ. The data analysis involved fundamental statistical analysis, t-test, F-test and Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. The results of the research showed that the students’ AQ and self-empowerment were at high levels (x =3.72, 4.02 respectively). Additionally, the students’ AQ and self-empowerment as classified by their personal information—gender, age, class and grade point average—did not have significant differences. Finally, the relationship between AQ and self-empowerment was positive with p<.001, (r=.675).
