I have tried many different ways of setting up my sons lessons in the past nine years. Homeschool Planet is the best that I have found. I not only keep track of my sons lessons, but all family commitments in one place. LOVE IT!!!!
Trudy, Co-op Member
After seven years of homeschooling with one online organized curriculum, we decided to mix things up this year. I needed a way to keep track of all the schedules and courses in one place. I tried the beta test of the Planner and just love it. I love that my daughters can log in on their own and mark lessons off, and they love it too! I like that I can add non-school items, like chores into the schedule for them to check off.

Over the last month during the beta I have sent in suggestions and have seen them come to life. It is great ...(more)

As a new homeschooling parent I had been struggling to keep track of assignments, grades and attendance. This planner has simplified things so much! I no longer worry about which spreadsheet certain information is in, it's just all done in one place and it is so simple to use!
Leann, Co-op Member
I am really enjoying Homeschool Planet! It is well thought out and designed for both ease of use and flexibility. It is helping to keep me organized and on task - two tasks which any homeschooler knows can be daunting. I use this program daily to print out task lists for all of my children, and weekly to plan ahead and help keep me on schedule. I'm so glad I found it - it is an awesome tool and of great aid to me. I've been looking for something like this for a while and I've tried most of the homeschool scheduling tools and programs out t...(more)

I have just completed my 30 day trial of Homeschool Planet and was quick to purchase the yearly subscription.

Homeschool Planet has made lesson planning so much easier for me. It used to take me hours to do 1 week of lesson plans on my homemade excel template. With Homeschool Planet I am able to do weeks of lesson planning, rescheduling things, add specific notes for certain days, and so much more. I like how I am able to set up a grading scale for each class and determine which assignments are homework, quizzes, projects, tests, etc. and...(more)

Homeschool Planet is exactly what I was looking for for my family. I tell everyone about it. Working around my husband's odd work schedule is difficult and when you add in co-op classes and extracurricular activities and it gets very hard to keep up with our work using a paper planner. Every other online planner I tried was difficult to use or made rescheduling difficult. With Homeschool Planet I can easily reschedule lessons when things change and keep the kids on track. I love the printing feature and my sons like to have a paper to check off...(more)

I simply do not have the time to sit a write out a lesson plan for our school year, which makes it hard to know how the whole school year is going to play out. And even if I did have time to write out a lesson plan, learning opportunities come up last minute that cause the schedule to change. People get sick and maybe you need a day or two to recover. And then there is your personal schedule, like doctor's appointments and the like . . .

With Homeschool Planet I can enter my plan in day by day OR with a few clicks I can auto create and ...(more)

I absolutely LOVE Homeschool Planet! The best organizational and grading program, HANDS DOWN.
G. Church, Co-op Member
LOVE IT!!!!! After reviewing 11 different planners the past several weeks, this is the one that most does what I want. I will be spreading the word.
S. Tebbetts, Co-op Member
I started homeschooling last year with little to no knowledge. I quickly found numerous resources out there, but through last year i found that there was a lot of records to keep. With more understanding under my belt I quickly started doing research about how to keep better records before the new school year. I quickly found many sites that claimed to be easy and very helpful. I quickly tried a lot of them. (30 days trials) What i found was that Homeschool-Planet was the best out there. I really was glad I tried it. I did like I did wit...(more)
