Entrepreneurial intention is the foundation for any decision to start a business or endeavor, making it a more significant predictor of future entrepreneurial participation. Since it is the most critical predictor of entrepreneurial behavior and a crucial component in comprehending the process of launching new business ventures, this study aimed to identify the factors that influence the entrepreneurial intentions of the Senior High School Students of St. Paul University Surigao. This study applied the quantitative research design employing a descriptive survey technique with 275 respondents. The main instrument employed in gathering necessary data was the researcher-made questionnaire. The collected data were treated using sample percentage, mean and standard deviation, and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The results showed a significant difference in the factors influencing the entrepreneurial intention of the senior high school students when grouped according to their family business and strand. The research results could serve as background knowledge and a framework for future researchers doing deeper investigations similar to this study.
