Academically, ATI looks very good. However, my dh and I were not willing to make the lifestyle changes ATI required. We also don't agree with everything Gothard/IBLC teaches.

what sort of life changes did it require? my family and i are kind of blank canvases as for homeschooling, well kind of everything right now, so i'm sure we can accomodate it. hopefully.

It isn't homeschooling changes; it's *family* changes.

Have you read anything about Bill Gothard? You might want to do an Internet search on him.

You might say it is extreme conservative Christian. It has been a while since I had much exposure but I would be surprised if it had changed much. Unless your family fits in with the lifestyle restrictions that they teach, you will be uncomfortable at the seminars. These are things like no debt for any reason (including home mortgage), dietary restrictions from the Old Testament, banning of modern music including Contempory Christian, no use of birth control (and a low view of marital relations in general), strict courtship, etc. For families who do agree with the teachings (i have had friends involved), there is a lot of support which is often very appreciated as they tend to be on the fringes of a church due to the strictness.
