I have tried numerous online, paper-based, and self-invented strategies for keeping my and my sons' homeschooling lives organized and focused. I tried Homeschool Planet on the 30-day trial, and I was pleasantly surprised at how intuitive it is to use, and how much my kids enjoyed seeing their work laid out in the digital format for them to check off, and check in. I've recommended it on our homeschool network, and I look forward to this year with a new *team member* in our corner.

I absolutely LOVE the Homeschool Planner! It makes planning our day/week so easy and I don't know what I would do without it! This planner is simply THE most useful tool I have and I am truly grateful for all the great features! The almost instant updating between my daughter's planner and mine saves us time and aggravation. The ease of adding assignments, changing around assignments quickly, and adding resources are all such helpful features that they really make this planner stand above the others I've seen. Thank you so much for making my li...(more)

The Homeschool Planet creates one place where I can schedule everything! I can add resources to assignments. It helps with grading, attendance, and life projects. This is really easy to use and has improved my homeschooling experience!

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)

I can't do school now without my Homeschool Planet planner. Our whole family is planned out there with text reminders of doctor appointments, special events (like the webinars) and youth activites. It was exactly what I have been longing for since I started homeschooling. I am taking two weeks this summer to write out lesson plans, find links and prep for next year. The cool thing is that I will never be off schedule even if something comes up and I have to reschedule a day. The program does it for me! On behalf of the boys, that you for maki...(more)

I have absolutely loved using the online Homeschool-Planet Planner. I had tried paper planners, homemade computer organizers, etc. but this program makes it all so easy. I am able to go in and plan lessons as far ahead as I like but can edit easily if the need arises. I love having the online grade book as well. Thanks so much for this tool!
Wendy Stacy, Co-op Member
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 have just renewed my subscription for a second year of Homeschool-Planet which is really saying something since I'm paying in Canadian dollars, not U.S.! I was concerned that the cost would be out of reach this year but after considering that I use Homeschool Planet all day, everyday of our school year, it seemed like a necessary investment.

Homeschool Planet has been the best scheduler on or off line that I have used, and after 11 years of homeschooling, I've tried a lot of different things! I can enter all of my assignments in each s...(more)

Homeschool Planet is an amazing tool that any efficient homeschooling parent (and student) should have. It has practically everything that we need and I can't say enough how thankful I am that this kind of product has been created (and reasonably priced at that). Great job!
Jeri M., Co-op Member
I love your planner! I haven't found anything else that is as comprehensive as this planner. My kids love having their own side of the planner and I love the ease of use. It's truly a blessing!
