Abstract: This study investigated the impact of ICT for quality secondary school education delivery in River State. To address the issue raised therein, 36 item questionnaire titled questionnaire for Application of Information and Communication Technology for Quality secondary school Education Delivery (QAICTQSED). The responses were correlated and analysed using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient to establish the reliability co- efficient of 0.90. The study adopted descriptive survey design and Technology acceptance model theory. For the analysis of data mean (x) was used to answer the research questions, while Z-test was used for the testing of hypotheses of no significant difference. The findings from the analysis revealed that ICT application for the delivery of quality secondary school education to a minimal extent has been achieved. This study recommends that teachers in secondary schools should be armed with appropriate and requisite skills in ICT so as to be able to impact these skills in the students and especially help in trouble-shooting ICT related problems. Educational managers should ensure that students are provided with practical and functional knowledge of computers, the internet and associated areas of ICT. Adequate funds should be allocated and disbursed to public secondary schools for proper financing and maintenance of ICT appliances. This study has provided an empirical basis for problem solving on the application of ICT for quality secondary school education delivery in River State among others.
