Chrysalis Charter's Full Profile



Chrysalis Charter says

Chrysalis is a public charter school that is free and non-discriminatory. We focus on science and nature within a kind, supportive community of staff and families.


At Chrysalis, we believe in sparking creativity, helping students make connections, and cultivating a true understanding of the academic material. Learning at Chrysalis is student centered and grounded in direct experience with the real world. Classes are small so that we can be responsive to teachable moments and delve deeper into the material. Students are placed in core subject classes by ability level so that students experience understanding rather than boredom or failure.

Nowhere is our interactive approach more visible than in our science program. Instead of saying, “I don’t know” or “Here’s the answer to memorize,” we encourage students to ask, “How can I figure it out?” and give them the tools they need to do so. Field study is a central part of our science curriculum. Every week you will find students out in nature exploring Palo Cedro, Turtle Bay, the Sacramento River, Clear Creek, and other beautiful locations. We believe that the outdoors is the perfect subject for developing sensitivity and fluency in thinking about complex subjects.

Mission Statement
