My son and I have been using Homeschool Planet for three years. My favorite feature is the school-year setting, which allows you to schedule assignments for multiple school years. It helps me make efficient choices for classes that have numerous lessons or carry over into the next year. My son is motivated by this feature because he wants to know exactly when he will finish a class. With Homeschool Planet, I can tell him and give him the option to do more and finish earlier--great for the summer months.

The other feature that my son and...(more)

I beta-tested this program last year and it still had too many features missing that were non-negotiables for me. At launch, I tried it again and... WOW... it's now exactly what I needed. I love all the options given to me to schedule things EXACTLY how we do it as a home school family. I feel like the program is working for me instead of me having to adjust to its limitations. It has saved me so much time using its auto-create feature for sequential assignments. I love being able to assign subjects to my kids in different ways based on frequen...(more)

Love this planner. Once all my sons classes where set up it was so easy to go in and edit or change whatever needed to be changed. This planner saved me time. My son liked it too because it kept him on track with his school work. I could add other appointments to the calendar so he could see what was going on for the week besides school work. If you are a home school mom who wants an efficient, time saving planner, this homeschool planner is definitely for you. The developers of this planner have put in a lot of time developing this home schoo...(more)

My 30-day trial ended and I decided to purchase Homeschool-Planet. I really like the ease of use and all the organization possibilities. I'm looking forward to using it more this fall when I start homeschooling both of my sons (I'm only homeschooling one right now). I think it will really help me keep track of their assignments. I like that the program will email my sons' daily assignments to them so that they can keep on track and know what to work on each day. I'm sure there are many more features I'll enjoy as I begin to use Homeschool-Plane...(more)

Homeschool Planet has been a wonderful and much needed addition to our homeschool program. Using Homeschool Planet has made scheduling much easier and has given me control over my organization. Both of my kids love having the daily plan printed out to see exactly what needs to be done and has given them more opportunities for independence in their work.

I have tried two products that were kind of similar, but neither of them were as user-friendly or as complete as Homeschool Planet. I will continue using Homeschool Planet and have and...(more)

It has required very little time in my assignment planning! I can easily have repeating assignments or ones that can show up only on Mondays...VERY HANDY! My kids enjoy getting to click on each assignment as it is completed. AND it is extremely easy for us to just print our assignments for the day if we are doing school away from home. It is certainly one of my favorite tools that I use with homeschooling. Thank you for providing such a practical service!

I have been homeschooling for 3 years now and used pre-made planners at the start. They were helpful but I would have to alter them in someway to suit my needs. Then I decided to make my own on my computer and that worked well enough until something came up, sickness or vacation etc. then I would have to go back and figure out what was done and what wasn't. This year I stumbled upon the Homeschool Planet scheduler and decided to give it a try. What a great system it has turned out to be! It is very easy to use and if something is late, it ...(more)

This program has been exactly what our family has needed to organize our lives and home school. I love that each child receives their weekly and daily schedule and is able to check off what they've accomplished. All eight of the children have loved using it. It has been so easy to get started and has met many of our desires. The 30 day trial was an added bonus. I can see we will be using it for a long time. The fee made it so affordable. This is the best tool our family has found to facilitate our home schooling experience. Others I have to...(more)

This is by far the best grade book/lesson plan program that I've tried. You can tell they read the feedback and are always striving to improve the product.
Lyndsey P., Co-op Member
I am starting my third school year using Homeschool-Planet as my scheduling tool. I have tried other methods/programs, but Homeschool-Planet is by far the most effective, homeschool applicable, and user friendly.
The program is easy to navigate from the first day of use. The scheduling options are abundant but appropriate (no extraneous frills cluttering the site). My favorites are the ability to link a website to an assignment, the ability to schedule classes on specific days of the week/month, and adding additional assignments to a date. ...(more)
