The main objective of this research was to investigate the linear structural relationship model of quality culture in the Royal Award Schools, Thailand. Researchers utilized a quantitative survey design and a questionnaire was used as an instrument. A total of 250 samples of nine research schools were selected from a total population of 1,155 school directors and teachers. Findings indicated that there are high, positive, and significant relationships between the seven hypothesized factors and quality culture at a significant level as .01. The factor loading values of all the seven factors ranged from 0.800 to 0.955. The relationship model of quality culture and its factors was found to be consistent with the empirical data with χ2 = 918.64; df = 230; χ2/df = 1.416; CFI = 0.98; AGFI 0.89; SRMR = 0.022; RMSEA = 0.017; RMR = 0.003. The findings highlighted the importance of hypothesized factors to enhance quality culture in Royal Award Schools. As a result, the findings can be utilized by school directors as a reference in managing their schools that promoting quality culture.
