The aim of this study was to investigate the organizational commitment of school principals in relation to loneliness and life satisfaction levels. The sample of the study consisted of 548 school principals chosen using a random clustering method from primary schools in Central Anatolia, Turkey. The results of the study showed that there was a positive correlation between the loneliness levels of school principals and the compliance levels of organizational commitment, and a negative correlation between loneliness and the internalization and identification levels of organizational commitment. There was also a negative correlation between life satisfaction levels of school principals and the compliance level of organizational commitment. A positive correlation was found between life satisfaction and the internalization and identification levels of organizational commitment. In addition, loneliness and life satisfaction levels of school principals accounted significantly for their organizational commitment. A possible explanation for this is that psychological support is given to those school managers whose loneliness levels are high and whose life satisfaction levels are low.
