Academic planners (or mid-year calendars) are typically made with students, teachers or anyone in education in mind. They aren’t limited to educators, though! Many business owners who operate on a fiscal year vs. a calendar year also prefer to use academic calendars.
Whatever your reasons for wanting a calendar that starts in July or August rather than January, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find a great list of academic year planners or mid-year calendars to suit your needs.

Erin Condren Academic Planners (starting at $37) are one of the most popular academic planners on the market, and for good reason. They are beautiful, fun, and super customizable. They include a tabbed and dated 12-month calendar with monthly and weekly spreads, lined pages for notes, detailed pages for tracking projects/goals or exams, inspirational quotes, and a coiled-in sticker sheet. I’ve met so many teachers, particularly those teaching younger students, who ADORE this planner. There are several pretty cover options so you’re sure to find one to suit your personality.
