I love using Homeschool Planet to keep us organized with assignments and our day to day appointments and activities. I print off a daily sheet for each of my kids and it helps hold them accountable for getting things done!
Sarah Harbarth, Co-op Member
Truly a great resource. I have put in the curriculum for the upcoming school year, chores the children do daily, as well as other information. The girls love to check and see whats on the schedule, play dates, trips etc. Can't wait for school to start. I feel soo much more organized.

I've been really impressed with Homeschool Planet, even in the Beta version. It's far better than the homeschool planner I've been using. It's easy to use, and I love the option of being able to do searches online right from the website! It's so nice to have the option to get a reminder every day as to what work my son has to complete. Makes our day so much easier, and the "Transcript" option makes keeping records a breeze.

The customer service is amazing. Anytime I had a question, I received a response that day, often in just hours. The st...(more)

Homeschool Planet has been great for me! It helps me organize and keep track of my son's progress as well as keeping track of what we have to learn next. My son loves the immediate feedback that he gets when he sees his grades report every day. I love that I can see what we did yesterday, today and what we will do tomorrow. I also love that I don't have to worry about recording attendance since it does that for me, I have my whole year mapped out, and I can create a transcript when I need to. This is a valuable tool to have.

I write this in the same manner that I shared my thoughts with dear homeschool friends since I stumbled upon Homeschool Planet - I am SO excited about this product that I want to tell everyone I know how much it has already made my life easier! I am not only impressed with the entire platform, but the quality of customer service (and stellar people involved in creating and implementing this program) is top notch and much appreciated.

Homeschool Planet can be used in any way that you need it to work for you and your family. It not only helps...(more)

I was pleased and impressed with the level of flexibility in scheduling. Being able to shift things so easily when plans change is amazing. My other digital calendar can't do that. What finally sold me was the report printing. I can get all that information back out in a hard copy that suits my needs. I definitely plan to try out a full year.

I would like to share with you the homeschool planner from Homeschool Buyers Co-op. It is called Homeschool Planet, and I love it!!! It has so many great features that I spent the first several days after starting my trial gushing about it to my husband. Here are some of the reasons I love this product:

1) The interface is very user friendly! It is very easy to add family members and assignments. I felt that it was all pretty intuitive, but they also have a tutorial available that is very helpful in making sure you'll get the most out of the ...(more)

I think this product is amazing, in particular, for homeschool parents entering the high school years with their kids. To have schedule, capacity to send texts to husbands to pick up grocery items, do transcripts, and keep track of grades all from one schedule planner. Plus room to do lists of groceries, keep track of Bible verses to encourage you, I loved it. I'm not a computer person, but I could do this.
Margaret B., Co-op Member
I signed up for the free trial of Homeschool Planet and spent a couple days "playing around" and adding curriculum, schedules etc. Having looked at a few other online planners, Homeschool Planet stands heads and shoulders above the others and does EVERYTHING I need a homeschool planner to do! I use curriculum with a variety of formats...some schedule by day, some by "Lesson 1, Day 1-?", some "5 lessons then a quiz" and ALL were easy to plug in, auto-fill for the lesson pattern and adjust as needed. I also liked the printable option for daily...(more)
Resa E., Co-op Member
Homeschool Planet has been a wonderful and much needed addition to our homeschool program. Using Homeschool Planet has made scheduling much easier and has given me control over my organization. Both of my kids love having the daily plan printed out to see exactly what needs to be done and has given them more opportunities for independence in their work.

I have tried two products that were kind of similar, but neither of them were as user-friendly or as complete as Homeschool Planet. I will continue using Homeschool Planet and have and...(more)
