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
The best product ever!! This morning I was crying trying to figure out how to get everything done. Homeschool Planet made it clear and I realized I was doing much better at homeschooling than I thought. THANK YOU!!
R. Araujo, Co-op Member
I've been really impressed with Homeschool Planet, even in the Beta version. It's far better than the planner I've been using. It's easy to use, and I love the option of being able to do searches online right from the website! It's so nice to have the option to get a reminder every day as to what work my son has to complete. Makes our day so much easier, and the "Transcript" option makes keeping records a breeze.

The customer service is amazing. Anytime I had a question, I received a response that day, often in just hours. The staff is al...(more)

Homeschool Planet has been a God-send to our homeschool! Thanks to this wonderful product I am able to stay organized (I'm organizational-challenged). At a glance, I know exactly what we will be doing each day and my children know what assignments they will be working on. My kids love it - our entire school day goes more smoothly. I love the fact that if we take a day off for an appointment we can easily move everything at once to the next day. The planner is very flexible and allows for customization, changes and alterations as we progres...(more)

I have really enjoyed using Homeschool Planet. I like that I can print the weekly schedule. My kids like the fact that they can pull it up on their iPads and keep track of their work. It has been a big help in planning my week and even ahead some. I wish I would have purchased sooner.
ACutshall, Co-op Member
As homeschoolers we don't just do school, we live school. I have tried dozens of planners and schedulers over the last 12 years, never finding one that was completely perfect for us. Then I tried Homeschool Planet and I was sold right away! It's the perfect family organizer, school organizer, planning program, etc. It does any and everything you'd ever need while being easy to use! I highly recommend Homeschool Planet for every homeschooling family!

I admit it; I'm organizationally challenged. And with 13 years of homeschooling under my belt (and 10 years to go, Lord willing) I've experienced plenty of frustration trying to find a system that works for our family to coordinate curriculum assignments, outside activities, and chores. And then the Homeschool Buyers Co-op offered a free trial to Homeschool Planet. WOW! It's so user-friendly and not as steep a learning curve as other e-planners I've tried. I've discovered it is adaptable to those times when "real life" happens, (unlike paper pl...(more)
Carol G, Co-op Member
When I was contacted about giving Homeschool Planet a trial run, I was a little nervous at first to give up my word document and "paper" planning that I've used for over 10 years, but I am so glad I did! I LOVE Homeschool Planet! It has saved me so much time. The planner is so flexible. When someone is sick or has to miss days of school work for any reason, Homeschool Planet reschedules all the school work with just a click or two. It is so versatile, so easy to add to, change or move assignments. It makes planning so much more efficient. I als...(more)

I think this product is amazing, in particular, for homeschool parents entering the high school years with their kids. To have schedule, capacity to send texts to husbands to pick up grocery items, do transcripts, and keep track of grades all from one schedule planner. Plus room to do lists of groceries, keep track of Bible verses to encourage you, I loved it. I'm not a computer person, but I could do this.
Margaret B., Co-op Member
After the initial trial, I subscribed to the full year. Homeschool Planet quickly replaced all of my prior efforts to plan on paper and has made tracking the school year's assignments very easy for my family.
I expect that we will use this from this point forward until we wrap up our homeschooling effort with my four year old, as the Homeschool Co-Op has shown quick responses to my questions and suggestions.
