The Best School Planners for Students, student planner, college planner, academic planner

The best school planners for students! A new school semester is quickly approaching and I decided to make a blog post about my favorite school planners. I will make sure to add a link to the place where I purchased the planner or a similar one. This collection is going to help you find a planner to stay organized throughout the school year.

Some of the planners are for 2017 – 2018, but companies often sell the same planner for the next year. If there is an updated version, I will add a link to the planner for the current year.

Here is an updated list of the best school planners for college students (2018 – 2019).

On this page, I used the Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens  and the  Pilot B2P Pen

The B2P pen is amazing to create fake calligraphy titles and the erasable pens don’t leave a shadow on the page when you erase them from the paper.
