Planning is Success.

Every student – middle schooler, high schooler, or college student – faces a mountain of assignments, activities and deadlines every single week.

How do young learners juggle a busy schedule, prioritize tasks and make time for extracurriculars?

The answer is simple: they write it all down.

In our hyper-digital age, it’s tempting to look to screens for the answer. But we’ve found through years of 1-on-1 student coaching, research, and brain science that using good ol’ pen and paper to plan is best. That’s why we created Class Tracker Planners.

Students of every academic level need a practical way to get organized, manage their time and take control of their busy lives.

Our simple, intuitive planners give students a clear path forward, so that they can feel prepared – and succeed – in school, and beyond.

“Class Tracker has all other planners beat. The self-care tracker is a big part of the reason why I began to take my well-being more seriously, it is very motivating to see as I plan my weeks! Definitely a reminder that there is more to life than exams and assignments!”
-Karen, College Student

“As a junior, there is a heavy stress that comes along with homework assignments and course rigor, but this planner has made it easy to navigate such a stressful time in my life. I've been able to keep track of all my homework assignments in a way that is clear to see, and easy to access.”
-Amelia, High School Student

“The Class Tracker planner has been great for teaching our 7th grade student to stay organized and manage his time while ensuring that his assignments get turned in on time. Transitioning from elementary to middle school was less daunting once he became accustomed to consistently using his planner to write each class’s assignments and checking them off once he completed them. The planner gave us a window into how he was doing and provided a scaffold for teaching executive functioning skills.”

The One Thing Every Student Needs

For years I was an academic coach and I noticed a problem.

I spent half my time with students planning their schedules, and half on their actual work.

Young people aren’t taught how to prioritize tasks and get organized, and the adolescent brain isn’t developed enough yet to plan. They desperately need structure.

So I got to work.

I designed a weekly worksheet to write down homework and due dates. When my tutoring students starting using my worksheet, I saw two things:

They became better planners

Week after week of focused planning helped them manage the details of school and life.

My tool gave them the structure they needed

to focus on one task at a time, complete work for deadlines, and decide which items take priority.

“I wanted to help not just my 1-on-1 clients, but students everywhere.”

Empowering Every Student

That’s how Class Tracker was born!

I created the ultimate planner for students of every academic level.

My system is the culmination of my 20+ years of combined classroom and business experience. From my time as a social studies teacher in Northern California, to my years of tutoring students in the Bay Area, to my product development days with online education platforms, I’ve studied how young people excel.

The result? The most simple, intuitive planner that puts students on track for success.

Based on Science,
Built with Care

We all want to multitask and tackle everything on our to-do list at once.

But the reality is that we can only handle one thing at a time. This is especially true for adolescents, whose brains are still developing.

Drs. Adam Gazzaley and Larry Rosen, authors of The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World share that our brains are limited in their ability to pay attention. We’re driven to seek immediate gratification, which is why we like to switch to new tasks, rather than tough through the hard work to complete a project.

For young students, distraction is everywhere. Phones, friends, activities, and a myriad of assignments, tests, and deadlines.

But focusing on a single task at a time is the only way forward, and it’s what students at every level need to do to accomplish their goals.

This is why an effective planner is so crucial to student success. Students need to write down their tasks, prioritize, track their progress, and enjoy the satisfaction from completing an assignment.

“You can help your teenagers better manage time and organize tasks by giving them calendars and suggesting they write down their daily schedules. By doing so on a regular basis, they train their own brains.”

The Teenage Brain, Dr. Frances Jensen

At Class Tracker we understand the unique challenges that young learners face. Our planners were designed to meet the needs of students at each academic level – both what their developing brains can handle, and what their schedules require of them.

We create custom planners for K12 schools and colleges and student support programs across the country.
