From goals to assignments, this 13-page student planner printable is just the thing to keep your school year on track! It’s perfect for students of all ages and can be used for anything from an elementary student planner to a college student planner, including for specialized majors such as a nursing student planner.
There are a lot of different ways to get organized—calendars, electronic or online student planners, apps, bullet journals, and of course old fashioned paper student planners. And that’s just scratching the surface of the organizational iceberg. However, my favorite option, whether you’re on the hunt for a college student planner or an elementary student planner, is a printable!
Here are just a few of the reasons why this printable beats all of the best planner apps for students:
- Physically picking up a writing utensil and checking boxes or crossing things off is simply way better than tapping a screen. Don’t believe it? According to a Harvard Business Review article, “Checking off tasks literally releases dopamine in our brains, a neurotransmitter that make us feel light and happy.”
- Printables tend to be more flexible and customizable. For example if you’re an adult student and want a nursing student planner you can combine the 13-page printable below with other printables, such as a printable meal planner and printable grocery list to get a product that fits your specific needs.
- You don’t need Internet access or cell phone coverage like you do to use online student planners.
- This printable is affordable; no, it isn’t free but there’s also no reoccurring monthly payment as there are with some of the best planner apps for students. (There are also no annoying ads!)
Bonus: Speaking of meal planning and grocery lists, if you’re a college student looking for nutritious, delicious, easy, and affordable food options, look no further!
Starting to see why I think the best student planner is a printable (specifically this 13-page printable)? Let’s take a closer look at all of the awesome organizational tools included in this student planner printable….
Student Planner Printable Cover
Okay, I guess technically, the cover of this student planner printable isn’t an organizational tool; however, I still think it’s worth calling out. Choose from three different covers. Each cover is colorful, which prevents it from being too stuffy or boring, but the abstract geometric background keeps the cover from being too childish. That means whether you’re using this as an sixth grade student planner or a nursing student planner, the cover is appropriate! 🙂
Student Daily Planner
The daily planner template printable offers space for you to write down your:
- Top priorities for the day.
- Schedule by hour.
- To-do list.
- Assignments that are due.
Simply print multiple copies of the student daily planner pages so you have one for each day. You can then write the date on the top. Note that there are approximately 180 days in the school year.
Bonus: Not a student? You still may be able to benefit from a daily planner. Here are some non-student daily planner’s to check out:

It offers boxes for each school day, Monday through Friday, as well as boxes for different subjects. Note big things like grade-making assignments, exams, or presentations so you can, at a glance, see where to focus your attention for the week.

Weekly To Do List Template Printable (PDF Download)
Unless you’re using this as an elementary student planner for your kid, there’s probably more on your student’s to-do list than strictly academic items. For example, maybe your child has extracurricular activities to keep track of, an after school job or internship, or household chores. This weekly to do list template printable PDF download is a great place to keep track of those non-academic tasks as well as weekend to-dos.
Bonus: If you’re a college student (for example, using this as a nursing student planner) and finances are a concern, consider adding this free personal weekly budget template or this free printable budget planner by month to your student planner.
Elementary through College Student Planner: Printable Class Schedule Template (PDF Download)
The printable class schedule template PDF download is especially useful if you’re using this as a high school or college student planner and you have different classes on different days. This printable even has a “legend” of sorts at the bottom where you can write the location (for example, the room number) of each class.
Tip: While there isn’t specifically a field for this on this printable, it may also be usefully to write the teacher’s name and any contact info, such as an email address, on the legend. This will allow you to quickly reach out if needed.
Bonus: While this best student planner is a frugal college supply, many of the other items you’ll need aren’t nearly as affordable. Here are some ways to get frugal or even free school supplies! (Yes, even for college students.)
Goal Tracker Template Printable
While there are some awesome online student planners out there, many of them are solely focused on to-dos. One of the reasons I love this student planner printable is that it allows you to set and track goals, academic or otherwise. This goal tracker template printable is a great place to keep a running list of goals and the steps you’ll need to achieve them.

Best Student Planner Add-Ons: Grade Tracker Printable
I’ve never seen a planner app for students (like a mobile application) that allows you to track grades, but you will get that functionality with this printable planner! 🙂 Simply include a grade tracker printable page. Consider printing a copy for each subject in order to make it easier to figure out how you’re doing in each class.
Bonus: While grades and school, in general, are important, don’t forget to have a little fun! Working constantly can lead to high stress levels and burnout. You can unwind by using coloring pages or by searching for fun free things to do near me.

Keep a running list of assignments that are due by using the student assignment tracker template printable. This is a great place to keep track of assignments that are do in the future, such as toward the end of the semester so that you don’t forget about them. If you’re in college, you may be able to fill this out using the course curriculum that most professors give out at the beginning of the term.
