I finished homeschooling nearly two years ago, but keep my Homeschool Planet because I’ve never found an online planner that I like better. I may even use it on my return to professional life and modify it from ‘students’ to ‘clients.’

This is the best planner for homeschooling I have found. We change things up a lot and at the last minute. I love that I don’t have to rewrite anything. I can just move it! I also love the option of purchasing lesson plans. For the time this saves me, it is more than worth the annual fee!
“Homeschool Planet changed my life in such a positive way. I struggle with keeping on track and following through with plans. Homeschool Planet allows me to plan out a whole semester at a time for each child (I have 7) with color coding and grading set up and reminders. It also emails each child, and me as well, with what is planned for that day. I can add links to youtube videos or attach documents for them to read or watch. I can also keep track of hours spent on each subject, which is mandatory in my state. I am able to make transcripts for my kids, keep book lists, and it also calculates grades; all I have to do is plug in the parameters and it does the rest. This is well worth the money as it has saved my sanity, and can you really put a price on that? My kids love it too; no more wishy washy mom saying, I thought I told you to do that. They can pull up their calendar and look to see if they were right. They usually are. I have shared this gem with every homeschool mom I come in contact with as well as on the homeschooling facebook pages that I am a member.”
A friend told me about Homeschool Planet, and initially I was hesitant to try it. I’ve always been a pen and paper/calendar/planner type of Mom, but with the 30 day trial, what did I have to lose?
Homeschool Planet has been the very best homeschool decision I’ve made. It is very easy to use, will auto populate some curricula, allows you to easily correct input errors, and is available across all my tech toys: computer, iPad, iPhone, and android phone. I no longer have the burden of carrying a paper planner, but can easily access anything I need to do with schedule at a glance. I’m using it not only for school and daily schedules, but my personal schedule and a separate calendar for budgeting and bill pay. Great product. I wish they would offer a lifetime purchase, but I will continue to purchase yearly.
My daughter loves that her schedule is emailed to her, as does my husband.
Homeschool-Planet has improved our homeschooling! I tried the 30 day free trial close to the end of our year. I spent time using Homeschool-Planet and setting up schedules for everyone. My children love it!!! They loved having a scheduled time and limit to certain assignments and were really motivated to follow it. They finally completed their assignments in a timely manner instead of dragging it out aallll day long. It has helped me schedule times for housework and all the things that need to be done. While using our free trial, we all got sick to the point of not being able to do school for three days. Rescheduling our assignments was sooooo much easier and less time consuming. That was the deciding factor to purchase the year subscription! I have had so much more time to focus where else is needed. I’m not able to use the grading to its fullest extent because it’s the end of the year, but what I’ve used has shown me that it is also going to be very easy to use and save soooo much time!!! Homeschool-Planet is a neccesity for schooling more than one child! I love it and so do my children.
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.
This is THE solution I was looking for! I spent my first 2 years home schooling using an excel spreadsheet to plan my lessons, and it was miserable. It was inflexible and terribly limited, and I spent way more time fussing with it than I wanted.
For year three I went hunting for an on-line homeschool planner. I found My Well-Planned Day and got in as a Beta user, prepared for some hiccups but optimistic that it would be a better tool for us. Wrong. After a year and a half I was so frustrated with glitches and limited functionality that I was ready to resort to paper.
I reached out to the other home schoolers I know on Facebook, hoping they had better answers, and one of them pointed me toward Homeschool Planet.
I was skeptical after my previous experiences, but you won me over within the first week of my free trial. Before the trial period was even over, I’d ordered my subscription. After all the time I’d wasted and frustration I’d encountered, it was such a huge relief to find something that really WORKS. Not only does this program make planning my lessons easier and faster, but it actually saves me time during the day, too, and helps to keep me on track with reminders (which I really needed). Daily assignment lists for the kids make their days easier, grading and missed assignment reminders help me keep up each day instead of doing massive catch-up grading sessions, and nothing gets lost or overlooked either. I am HOOKED.
Thank you so much, for this program. I cannot believe that I managed without it for almost four years. You’ve managed to make a product that really does everything I need and more, and does it cleanly, efficiently, and beautifully. I have already recommended this program to several other people and will continue to do so. It’s a life (and time) saver!
What a lifesaver and time saver! I have tried MANY other scheduling programs and this program takes the cake. It’s easy to just pick up and run with it the first day; but makes scheduling a month ahead easy. My favorite part is the ability to carry forward lessons that we “didn’t get to” because of something unforeseen. It is easy to schedule in advance and the reports help my children check off their assignments on their list. Having Homeschool Planet gives me my weekends back, where I don’t have to plan out, and write out each individual day for all my children. Thank you for such a great product.
