Chrysalis Graduates Pursuing Passion
Since they aren’t bound to a traditional 35-hour school week, Chrysalis students have the time to do what interests them and follow their passions. Our flexible scheduling allows students time to take classes in the community, participate in sports, travel, and engage in community service. We know that learning doesn’t only happen in the classroom and that these are valuable pursuits and valid learning opportunities. Some students go above and beyond, committing themselves to a sport or career that requires a high level of time and commitment, and are supported by our flexible approach.
