The Centered Student System


Unlike typing, writing down your schedule and assignments activates your brain so you remember information.


Seeing a snapshot of your entire week helps you prioritize tasks and manage your schedule effectively.


Reflecting on what’s going well and what you’re grateful for reduces stress and boosts your overall happiness.

No Ordinary Notebook

Active notetaking (while listening) is critical to college success. Writing by hand activates the brain and improves memory. These one-of-a-kind notebooks illustrate THREE different note taking strategies and come with a bonus stencil to add a touch of creativity.


My Favorite Planner

My mom got me this planner as a graduation gift 2 years ago and it is still my favorite planner I have used. This past year I got one mid year because I felt so unorganized without it. I love the to do lists because I can have it next to my schedule and see everything I have to do for the week all at once.


College Student Approved

I found the Centered Student when looking for planners for my college freshman, this one had everything he needed and everything he didn’t know he needed. He was hesitant to use it at first. Within the first month of freshman year he was convinced! Before the end of second semester, he was asking for one for his sophomore year. Thank you for supporting my son through his college journey to full adulthood.
