Spiritual values are the integrated values towards the spiritual development of children. The present study is broadly aimed at identifying and assessing spiritual values among school children. The sample of 104 school children was drawn from grade 5th to grade 8th from different schools of Aligarh city. Of these, 46 children were females and 58 were males. Simple random sampling technique was used to select participants to the sample. The objectives of the present study were: (1) to identify spiritual values among school children (2) to find out percentage of endorsement for a particular spiritual values by school children, and (3) to find out difference between the percentage of male and female school children endorsing spiritual values. Twenty eight spiritual values were identified by children themselves as with regard to their formation of personality. They are: Courage, Charity, Creativity, Cheerfulness, Caring, Discipline, Equality, Faithfulness, Goodness, Honesty, Humility, Happiness, Helping, Hard-work, Humorous, Kindness, Mannerism, Obedience, Punctuality, Peace, Polite, Social, Sharing, Sacrifice, Sincerity, Simplicity, Truthfulness, and the value of being Understanding. Significant differences were found between percentages of female and male school children on the following spiritual values: Caring, Discipline, Sincerity, and Punctuality. Significant differences were not found between the percentages of female and male school children on the remaining spiritual values. Thus, it can be concluded that the spiritual values are responsible for the personality and spiritual development of children. The aim of education should be towards the cultivation of spiritual values at the primary and secondary levels and to develop spiritual individuality.
