This study explores the correlation between achievement goals and positive emotion, engagement, relationship, meaning and accomplishment (PERMA) which might affect life satisfaction for Indonesian students in English education programs. The present study employed 260 of Indonesian students in English education programs, selected by using cluster random sampling. The students were enrolled in undergraduate 223 (85.8%) and postgraduate 37 (14.2%). The study follows a correlational research design to measure the degree of relationship between achievement goals, PERMA and life satisfaction. We employed confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) with AMOS 18 to analyze the data. Results indicate that achievement goals and PERMA influence positively life satisfaction. Moreover, PERMA is positive full mediators meaning that students who adopt achievement goals with high PERMA would probably have good life satisfaction. In conclusion, PERMA and achievement goals have an positive effect on students’ life satisfaction. Keywords: Achievement goals; confirmatory factor analysis, life satisfaction, PERMA, structural equation modelling
