I'm setting up Homeschool Planet for this coming school year, so my daughter hasn't yet used it. But so far I LOVE that I can combine very specific class schedules and assignments into the same calendar that I can keep track of every other appointment for every other person in my family as well as multiple to-do lists. I also like that I can access it on multiple devices away from home. This is the ultimate calendar for the color coded perfectionist like myself! Of course, it would also be great for non-color-coded perfectionists :)

I absolutely love Homeschool-Planet. It was so easy to learn and set up. I used a different online program before and it was confusing, not user friendly, made me dread setting up my school year, and it took days to do it. Homeschool-Planet took me no time to set up my entire year. My kids love getting their daily plans emailed to them. I use the texting option for my oldest so he knows what appointments he has to schedule into his day along with schoolwork. I like to do my entire lesson plans for the whole year, but in the past I was alw...(more)

I love Homeschool Planet! So do my children. They actually complete their work in a timely manner, whereas, before the planner, they took forever to do their work. No more frustrations there!!! Also, rescheduling is a snap! Grading is just gravy. ;-) This is everything you could ever dream of in a planner. Saves soooo much time!
Stacy Brandli, Co-op Member
I love Homeschool Planet. Everyone knows exactly what they are expected to accomplish each day The kids enjoy using it because it gives them the ability to mark things off as they are completed. They know what activities they have each day and when their activities begin. Managing their time becomes more of their own responsibility. We will continue to use Homeschool Planet. I have shared this product with others and they enjoy it as well.

I spent 3 weeks of our summer break looking for the perfect planner. I homeschool 2 of my three boys, the oldest is in public high school.

I wanted a planner that my boys would have access too, would organize my homeschool, home-life, basically my sanity. Homeschool-Planet does all that!

I have been using Homeschool Planet for almost 3 months. It has reduced my planning time each week & aids our homeschooling days in running smoother. It has been well worth every cent in the amount of time I save with it!
Renata, 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.
Pam G, Co-op Member
I tried 3 different online planning programs within a few days of each other. Homeschool Planet was by far the easiest, quickest, most painless one to set up for my 3 homeschooled children. My children are finding the printed weekly schedule easy to follow....we aren't using the 'email schedule to....' part of this program. I have bought a subscription even tho' I am not using this program to its fullest potential as it is still saving me lots of paper hassle and disorganization.

I absolutely LOVE Homeschool Planet! The best organizational and grading program, HANDS DOWN.
G. Church, Co-op Member
LOVE Homeschool Planet!! With 6 children,5 different grades -- 2 quickly approaching high school and 1 already in high school -- Homeschool Planet has been a sanity saver. Keeping track of grades and producing grade reports and transcripts had me very worried, but this program is making it SO easy while helping me keep track of our busy family life. A big THANK YOU to the developer AND to those who are marketing this product!!
