A survey on confidence in 21st century skills among senior high school (SHS) students was conducted. Three hundred SHS students, 132 males and 168 females, from two public SHS (rural and urban) and two SHS from a State College/University (SUC) participated in the survey. Grouping the respondents according to sex, grade level, school type, and curricular programs, non-parametric statistical tests were employed in data analysis. Kruskal-Wallis H test revealed no significant difference in the confidence in the 21st century skills among the respondents when grouped according to sex and grade level, but significant differences were observed only in terms of collaboration skills when the respondents were grouped according to the type of school, H (2) = 9.885, p = 0.007, and curricular programs, H (2) = 6.197, p = 0.045. Spearman’s rank correlation showed no significant relationship between the respondents’ age and their confidence in 21st century skills. This suggests that confidence in 21st century skills is not only influenced by demographic factors but also by students’ experiences, interactions, and learning processes. Thus, further investigations should examine the interplay among students’ confidence in 21st-century skills, academic performance, and sociodemographic characteristics to understand better students’ readiness for the challenges in the 21st century.
