Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the effect of academic motivation training on increasing academic motivation, grit and academic engagement of high school students. For this purpose, 40 people from the ninth grade students were selected using a multi-stage random method and were replaced in two experimental and control groups (20 people in each group). The training group received 12 sessions of academic motivation training and the control group did not receive any intervention. Dependent variables were measured in pre-test and post-test stages. Vallerand, Blais, Briere and Pelletier Academic Motivation Scale, Duckworth Grit Scale, and Reeve and Tseng Academic Engagement Scale were used in this study. Data analysis using multivariate analysis of covariance showed that by controlling the effects of pre-test, the training method has a significant effect on academic motivation, grit, and academic engagement.
