The participants were 240 students (120 boys and 120 girls) in tenth and eleventh grades, which were selected using multi-stage random cluster sampling method and randomly assigned into experimental and control groups. They completed the meaning in life questionnaire (Steger et al, 2006), and savoring scale (Bryant & Veroff, 2007) in their regular classes. The experimental group received the positive education training based on positive psychotherapy program (Rashid & Seligman, 2011) for fourteen sessions and two sessions per week. The findings using multivariate analysis of covariance and univariate analysis of covariance showed that experimental group had a statistically significant progress in sense of meaning and savoring in comparison with control group. According to this research findings, it can be concluded that the positive education training in schools can promote students’ psychological strengths to attain academic success.
