This study aimed to verify the effects of self-growth program on self-concept, motive for achievement, sociality of the elementary school students and to provide basic data for self-growth. The participants of experiment consisted of total of 24 students, including 12 students of the 5th grade (6 male, 6 female) and 12 students of the 6th grade. Among these students, 12 (3 male and 3 female each from the 5th and 6th grade) were selected at random as the experimental group, and another 12 was assigned as the control group. For verifying effects, the independent samples t-test and paired samples t-test were used. Conclusions of this study were as follows. First, self-growth program had a positive effect on the concept of general, academic, and emotional self, except on concept of social self, for the elementary school students. Second, self-growth program had a positive effect on motive for achievement of the elementary school students. Third, self-growth program had an effect on sociality of the elementary school students . Fourth, according to survey through an evaluation sheet, students responded that self-growth program was 'helpful in general.' They were also satisfied with the fact that, through the self-growth program, they had an opportunity to reflect on themselves. Based on the limits of this study, I would like to make the following suggestions for future studies. First, as self-growth program was accomplished in a short period of time, it will be difficult to activate and internalize it. Therefore, we need the development of a long-term self-growth program to activate and internalize. Second, as the result is achieved by testing in the aspect of perception through examination by paper and pens, it is hard to make a conclusion as to how the result will affect the actual life. Therefore, to verify the effect of the program's application, qualitative studies through reports from researchers, teachers, parents, and friends who observe participants, along with quantitative studies, should be followed. Third, composed of lectures and indoor activities on the whole, the program can be boring. Therefore, if we add more active and interesting sides in applying the program in the future, it will have greater effects on the concept of self, motive for achievement, and sociality.
