I Love Homeschool Planet!! I have been using a different program to plan and organize my homeschooling for years and have found Homeschool Planet to be far more effective and efficient. My kids love how the daily schedule is emailed to them every day and I love how easy it is to accommodate each student's scheduling needs. I will continue to use Homeschool Planet for as long as I am homeschooling. I would recommend this product to every homeschool family!! Thank you for creating just what this busy homeschool mom needed!!!

I was part of the beta test and have purchased this for the year. I have to rave about Homeschool Planet. If you are using a paper planner, you may want to consider this online planner instead. It has so many features and benefits, it's amazing! Some of my favorites:

It's SO user friendly. If you have used a calendar before, it is very intuitive and has information and explanations right where you need them.

Text- My daughter thinks this is so cool that she can text me if we're in two different parts of the house!"I need help!" She has...(more)

When I was contacted about giving Homeschool Planet a trial run, I was a little nervous at first to give up my word document and "paper" planning that I've used for over 10 years, but I am so glad I did! I LOVE Homeschool Planet! It has saved me so much time. The planner is so flexible. When someone is sick or has to miss days of school work for any reason, Homeschool Planet reschedules all the school work with just a click or two. It is so versatile, so easy to add to, change or move assignments. It makes planning so much more efficient. I als...(more)

We've tried several planners, record-keepers, trackers and Homeschool Planet has been the best I've used! The kids love being able to sign in to see what their assignments are each day, checking them off, and it's eco-friendly - no more paper to-do lists. I've posted on my social media about it being our fave - and hope to write a review on my blog.

Homeschool planet has allowed my teenagers to be in control of their own schedule and allowed our family to be a happier place. They can see the assignments for the week, they can add assignments from their outside classes, they can even decide to adjust the schedule if necessary. All this and I can see at a glance if they are behind in anything. It is wonderful!

Homeschooling Planet has been awesome. We use it just for homeschooling and love it. I use to write out every week what needed to be done for that week and hope it didn't get lost. Now I can put in the whole month and my son can look at it daily and do his work on his own and check it off when he is done. I also have the capabilities to grade things and it keeps track of it for me. I love it! We started with the 30 day trial and will be signing up for the year. Thank you for this service.

I have been enjoying my free trial of homeschool planet and intend to subscribe at the end. It is very easy to schedule tasks and assignments. It has helped keep ME on task and on schedule and enabled me to see the long view of our school year and organize our schedule with balance. I intend to give my son access to the site to mark of his own assignments as well. When there was a problem with an update, the site administrator was very quick to recognize that I was getting an error message and it was fixed promptly.

I've tried just about every online planner free trial and they each have one or two things at which they excel. Homeschool Planet has incorporated the best parts of each of these other planners. However, Homeschool Planet excels where none of the others do: There was NO learning curve! None! I was walked through every part and never felt frustrated. It's a beautiful system and I can't think of a fault to point out. I am only sad that my kids are too young for me to justify the expense just yet. As soon as our schedules become even a tad...(more)

Special thanks to Brett and the amazing support staff at Homeschool Planet for a resource that has helped our family tremendously with our organization, communication, planning, and record keeping for everything that has to do with homeschool! It is a unique program that takes into consideration all of the necessary aspects of what a homeschool parent needs for both home life and school life. Another thing that I am consistently impressed with is the timely and helpful responses that come from the staff when I have any questions or issues, but ...(more)

I love this program! It really helps me plan and re-arrange lesson plans easily. I love the fact I can print out a daily assignment list for my child to check off as she finishes assignments. If our schedule gets interrupted and I have to shift an assignment or even change the entire schedule, it is incredibly easy to do without having to totally re-type or copy and paste. Plus, the entire lesson fits on the line- no partial assignments or words left off that didn't fit in the little box. It is worth the money!!!
