We do
It works for our family.
They are a Christian based program, so if you are not Christian, you may not like it.

 Yes, I am Christian, and that part is appealing.  However, I am wondering if it is a GREAT curriculum or only a mediocre curriculum, as far as advanced classes go?  (Physics/Calculus?)

It's great for our family
It really pushes the kids in math, which is good

I am not sure how far it goes(we are doing 2nd and 4th grade right now)

1 mom liked this

I do it and am very impressed with it.  My son is in first grade and is reading amazingly and adds, subtracts, can carry, do fractions, etc. 

For the person that said that they are in a charter school.  If your kid cant read, that is a teacher failure.

 There's apparently a video version of Abeka, and I watched a sample video segment of a Calculus class.  Other than the teacher being straight out of the 1980s, he taught it exceedingly well.
