Chrysalis is a free public charter school sponsored by the Shasta County Board of Education serving students from kindergarten through eighth grade. There is no tuition or discrimination. Our school is intentionally small so that we might really and truly know each and every student and help their individual light shine brightly.
We are an “out-of-the-box” school and we embrace “out-of-the-box” kids. Many of our students are gifted in “naturalist intelligence” – the bug and snake and star kids, the systems thinkers, the big picture thinkers. We study science as a core subject, use the outdoors as our classroom on Fridays, go camping twice a year as a community, and much, much more. Many are attracted to our school for other reasons such as our emphasis on deep, conceptual understanding or because of the kindness of our community.
