We Love, Love, Love Homeschool-Planet. Just started using it in early September this year and it has helped me tremendously! My kids love getting their daily assignments sent to their email first thing in the morning. The rescheduling and grading helper are fabulous. I feel much more organized than ever before in my 9 years of homeschooling. Well worth the money. Thank you so much for creating this fabulously helpful program.

My famiy has been using this planner for just over a month. This is just what I have been looking for over a decade! After fiddling with paper planners and other difficult to navigate through systems, this has been a true blessing! My ninth grader plans out his entire schedule, giving him the opportunity to be autonomous. Easy to set up as well! We plan on keeping this well into our future! - Thank you!!!

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.

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!!

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've asked a lot of questions the last few weeks and just wanted to say how much I am enjoying Homeschool Planet. It has already changed our summer school experience, and I'm looking forward to it transforming our fall and "making things happen". Thanks for this program and keep up the great work!

I've been homeschooling my children for 14 years! This planner is THE BEST planner I've seen. I'm thrilled with how organized it is and how much we are able to get done on a daily basis. Every day I print and hang up not only the school schedule for the day but also the daily to-do list (for chores). No more forgetting or nagging! My daughter knows everything MUST be completed by a certain time each day. It's simple and organized! We love it!!!!!
Melanie D., Co-op Member
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)

I really like Homeschool-Planet. It's easy and I can keep track of everything in one place!
Milissa M, Co-op Member
Last year was our first year of homeschooling and I tried EVERY planner I could think of to try to get the academic year organized without any luck. I was pretty frustrated and a little panicked about the upcoming year because planning was such a weak point for us (me!).

When Homeschool Planet was offered in Beta version, I honestly thought I would be disappointed. I figured it would be like every other planner I tried - overly time-consuming, counterintuitive, and difficult to manage. That was not the case at all.

From the moment I...(more)
