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 have been using Homeschool Planet for 2 months now and I LOVE IT. The designs are great and I am glad that I finally found a non-complicated planner that I can start using right away. I love that it's online, so I don't have to "back up" my kid's information and can access it from anywhere. I was so into the program that I planned 6 months of certain, ongoing subjects in one sitting. And when something changed later on, I was able to easily go in and change it without it affecting the rest of the schedule. Tracking attendance days is rea...(more)
Kellee, Co-op Member
I have homeschooled our 3 children for 2 years and the hardest part is organizing all the "stuff". I am in day 20 of the 30 day trial and I am hooked. I have used other planners with little success. Homeschool Planet has allowed me to free up time to actual do more teaching-imagine that!!!! The KIDS Love it too!
Carla, 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.
M. Kobe, Co-op Member
I love it. It's just what I was looking for.
Andrea H., Co-op Member
Homeschool Planet has become an invaluable part of our school day. It has shortened my planning time (and stress) exponentially and my kids always know what they should be doing and when to do it. It is very easy & intuitive to use. My kids (8 & 11 yo when we started) and I did not have to "go to school" to learn how to use it. The first time we opened it up I was immediately able to start inputting info and the kids could easily access their chores and assignments. I HIGHLY recommend Homeschool Planet!
Sherri A., Co-op Member
We just started using Homeschool Planet last month and I have to say I love it. I have tried a few other homeschool tracking / planning programs and I like this one the best by far.

It's been quite intuitive. It's easy to set up classes, add assignments to the schedule and modify assignments when you need to.

It seems well worth the money to me.
Jenny Kidwell, Co-op Member
I highly recommend the Homeschool-Planet. I was able to use this program as a new homeschooling parent. It offers so many features and the ability to print your schedule showing multiple family members or a schedule for an individual. I printed my schedule with both my children's assignments listed and then printed one for each of them. They liked seeing their schedule for the day and checking off boxes as they completed their daily assignments. It is easy to create and schedule classes on the calendar for the whole year. I like the abili...(more)
Jan K., Co-op Member
I loved the experience, it really helped at a time of transition for my family. I plan on subscribing and i always brag about how wonderful and helpful it is. The children loved being able to see their assignments and just keep working.
J. Rhodes, Co-op Member
The preprinted Well Planned Day journal is my go-to favorite homeschool planning tool, but this makes a nice addition since my kids get their own check off boxes right on their laptop. I recommend this one. It's very user friendly, yet has the right balance of options for scheduling a variety of repeatable and non repeating events including chores.
