I signed up for a free 30 - day trial and I had only entered two days worth of assignments before I decided to go ahead and buy a subscription. Scheduling takes so much less time now And when life happens, rescheduling is easier, too.

My daughter likes being able to check off completed assignments and to see what's coming up. I won't go back to a pen and paper planner ever again.

I love Homeschool Planet! It does an excellent job of keeping all of us organized. The kids can mark off assignments as they finish them. I can keep up with what has been completed and what still needs to be finished. It is very user friendly. You can adjust lesson plans forward without having to redo days worth of plans. I will continue to use Homeschool Planet in the future.

I love love this planner!!! Especially now it tracks hours!! This is what I need the most and all in one place with assignments, grades, etc. Thank you!!

I homeschool 4 children in 4 different grades and I needed a tool that would help me plan out our days. At first I spent hours preparing a workbox system with daily assignments, but then I realized the shortcomings of that system: I could only plan a week in advance, one change would cause me to have to manually re-do the subsequent days' plans, and what if one of the little squares representing the assignment got lost? More work.

When I found Homeschool Planet, it had all the features I need and it was so easy to use. We were up and runnin...(more)

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)

This product is great! In fact, I was telling a friend about it this morning. I have used all the big homeschool planners and Homeschool Planet is by far the one I like the best. It has all the features I need and have looked for in other planners AND it is easy to learn, set up and use. Not an easy combination to find. I have used it exclusively for about 6 months and am looking forward to planning and tracking our next year with it.

My household has truly been blessed by Homeschool Planet. This has been the first year for a while that the children are on target with their lessons. The accountability has been great, with Dad able to view each child's progress throughout the day. Checking off things accomplished during the day has also been a motivation for the children and for myself (the mom). It has also been great for my oldest who is in college and lives at home. He can see where we are during the day and we can see in general where he is during that day. This progr...(more)

Homeschool Planet has been a sanity-saver! I have tried lots of other planners -- both paper and electronic -- and have never been as impressed with them as I have been with Homeschool Planet. I love that I can enter our lesson plans as far ahead as I need/want and they are easily adjustable with a simple click of a button. I don't need to erase and re-write if things change. I also find it incredibly helpful that I can add our appointments in, as well as chores and then have it all emailed to myself and each child (they are middle-school a...(more)

I have tried several homeschool planners, looking for one that would work for our family. Homeschool Planet is, by far, the most intuitive, easiest to use planner of all of them. I've finally found what I've been looking for! I have been able to schedule classes and make adjustments easily. The daily e-mails also allow everyone to know exactly what is planned for them each day. I love the fact that each child checks off the work they completed-what a time saver for me! Homeschool Planet has helped me to achieve the organization that I've always...(more)
Penny G, Co-op Member
I have 10 children and Homeschool Planet is really helpful. I like how I am able to see each child's schedule separately but most of all I like how the scheduler allows me to easily change my daily plans by moving things ahead a day when life happens! I've always just used paper planners but I think this is so much more helpful!
