Ecoliteracy and Adiwiyata School are pillars that support Education for Sustainability Development (ESD). However, most Adiwiyata schools only focus on process management, not yet on student outcomes. The purpose of this research is to describe the ecoliteracy profile at the Adiwiyata School. This study uses a case study research method with principals, teachers, parents, and students as participants. The research was conducted at the Adiwiyata School in Kebumen Regency. Data collection techniques comprise questionnaires, observation, interviews, and document studies. The data analysis technique uses interactive qualitative data analysis techniques. The results of the study show that ecoliteracy abilities include: (1) cognitive aspects showing the ability to think systematically in solving natural and social environmental problems; (2) the affective aspect shows a sense of acceptance, care, and empathy for the natural and social environment; (3) the activity aspect shows the ability to care for the surrounding environment and save energy; and (4) the spirit aspect shows admiration for the natural environment. This profile should be the focus of the development of Adiwiyata schools. The findings of this study can be a reference for implementing adiwiyata-based education by paying attention to students' ecoliteracy.
