I am really loving this program and the features it provides my family. I love the different ways I can use it and color code everything - as well as assign calendar items to specific family members.
Kim Hawkins, Co-op Member
I played around with several homeschool planners for a couple of weeks. I even paid for one 30-day trial with one that looked promising.

I am sticking with Homeschool Planet because it has all of the features I wanted and is flexible. My favorite features are:
- it's flexible enough to work for a wide variety of planning types. Lots of detail is available but you don't have to use it all.
- it's easy to reschedule assigments
- printable checklists for mom or student
- hours tracking
- flexible and time-saving routine scheduling...(more)

I have used an Excel workbook for tracking attendance, grades, weekly logs, etc. for the past several years, which has worked out fine. We are in our 8th year of homeschooling. With this year having my oldest in 7th grade, I needed something more of a schedule with easy ability to assign and move things around. I looked at a lot of options online and decided to try the free trial of Homeschool-Planet. Within just a few days we were hooked. Both my son and I love that he can bring his schedule up on his tablet and mark things off as he completes...(more)

Homeschool-Planet has really helped us stay organized. My daughter really enjoys getting her daily schedule by email. I have done a trial membership with two other similar homeschool planners and this one wins hands down. It is very easy to use and doesn't take forever to learn. I have purchased a year subscription and will likely use it for years to come. I have told all of our homeschooling families.

Homeschool Planet is the homeschool organizing tool I have been looking for since I stated homeschooling 5 years ago! After using excel spreadsheets, online and paper calenders, Homeschool Planet has everyone beat.

I love that I can schedule not just homeschooling activities but other family activities that are important to me and my husband. The text feature for shopping and To Do lists is an awesome organizing tool.

I won't use another online homeschooling tool!
Sabrina P., Co-op Member
I originally learned about the planner via a blog and a video. I knew as soon as I tried it, I would like it and I loved it. I have 3 children in 3 different years and it was so easy to plan their schedules. It completely reduced my time in planning and did away with printing and writing in a standard planner. I love that if you need to reschedule a lesson, it adjusts it throughout the planner. It just made life so much easier. I will continue to use it as soon as I have the funds to do so and will miss it greatly until I can get back to it. I ...(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)

First I have to say I am not at all a technologically sophisticated person. No smartphone or tablet here. I kept all of my records on a "regular" calendar and a spiral lesson planner. So far what I like is the daily reminder of my classes/activities that is sent to my e-mail. My kids don't have e-mail but when they get their own accounts that will be a very handy feature. I also like the attendance record which is mandatory that we keep in North Carolina. I've played around a bit with the transcript and grading features. My children are ...(more)
Edlyn, Co-op Member
Awesome! This program has been a life saver. Not only does it help me keep track of my homeschool lesson plan, but I also use it to keep track of upcoming projects and assignments for my non-homeschooled child. I would highly recommend this program. Worth every penny!
S Vaughan, Co-op Member
This Planner is awesome! I have tried others but this planner gives me everything and more! I love the To Do list the Shopping List, the Bible Verse of the day! I love how I can sync all our family calendars into one! You have made my life so easy!!!!

The homeschool planner is so easy and so powerful, even my daughter loves it. She loves being able to mark her assignments when they are completed and the details I am able to provide her in each assignment with videos or websites are great.

With the helpers, its like having an electro...(more)
