We switched to Homeschool-Planet this year after three years of using another homeschool planning program. We are delighted at the easy-to-use format, the edit-friendly options, and the flexibility of scheduling classes and making schedule adjustments.

During our first afternoon using the planner, we received multiple customer service emails because the technician working that afternoon noticed that there were problems we were encountering. He continued communicating with us and helping with our set-up process and learning time.

Love the daily and weekly e-mailed schedules!

The best product ever!! This morning I was crying trying to figure out how to get everything done. Homeschool Planet made it clear and I realized I was doing much better at homeschooling than I thought. THANK YOU!!
R. Araujo, Co-op Member
I'm setting up Homeschool Planet for this coming school year, so my daughter hasn't yet used it. But so far I LOVE that I can combine very specific class schedules and assignments into the same calendar that I can keep track of every other appointment for every other person in my family as well as multiple to-do lists. I also like that I can access it on multiple devices away from home. This is the ultimate calendar for the color coded perfectionist like myself! Of course, it would also be great for non-color-coded perfectionists :)
Shelley G., Co-op Member
I love Homeschool Planet, it gives me the opportunity to view everything in one place. I can setup my child's lesson plans daily, etc. I look forward to using it each year!!!
Susanne C, Co-op Member
I've been using Homeschool Planet for a few months now and I think I have finally found the last planner I will use for Homeschooling! I have tried so many planners online only to be disappointed until NOW! Not only is the customer service excellent, they actually listen to the customers and are quick to help! The planner is easy to use which is also a big plus! It has most of the features I need and they have been adding even more I didn't know I wanted! This is going to make organizing my homeschool a breeze. I have already told friends about...(more)

I absolutely love this planner!! I have only been homeschooling my three boys for four years, but I have tried so many different planning options. I've tried paper planners, where it is nearly impossible to plan the entire year at once - and then there's the erasing! Things will go amiss and re-planning will happen - so much trouble! I've tried online checklist programs (e.g. Cozi), but they required entering the new assignments every day. With four kids, one of them three years old, it just wasn't practical to enter lesson plans every night. I...(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.
Kristy J., Co-op Member
I have been using Homeschool-Planet for two months and really love it! It's super easy to use but also powerful. I would recommend it anyone wanting to get their homeschool more organized.
NS Colorado, Co-op Member
I have found it so easy to be organized with this program. Seeing as this is an area I have struggled in for a long time,I can honestly say I love it. I believe it has the ability to grow with my family's needs and I am a lifer for sure. Thanks Homeschool- Planet.
