This study assessed student attitude and choice of Christian Religious Knowledge in secondary schools in Calabar education zone. To achieve this purpose, one hypothesis was formulated. A review of related literature was carried out to examine what has already been documented on the phenomenon under study. The ex-post facto research design was considered most suitable for achieving the purpose of this study because the manifestations of the independent variables in the study have already occurred in the population. The simple random sampling technique was adopted in selecting the four (4) local government areas used for the study. The proportionate simple random sampling technique was adopted in selecting twenty-one (21) secondary schools and the seven hundred and three (703) senior secondary two students used for the study. A structured questionnaire titled student attitude and choice of Christian religious knowledge questionnaire (SACCRKQ) was the instrument used for collection of data in the study. The reliability of the research instrument was established through the Cronbach Alpha reliability method. Chi-square statistical tool was considered most appropriate for data analysis. The findings obtained from analysis of data and hypothesis testing revealed that there was a significant influence of attitude on students’ choice of Christian Religious Knowledge in the study area. Based on these findings it was recommended among others that students with negative attitude towards Christian Religious Knowledge should be properly sensitized on the need to change their attitude towards the subject and appreciate its moral values.
