My daughter joined Chrysalis after two difficult years in middle school. Within a few weeks, we saw what can only be described as a miraculous change in both attitude and interest in school. She went from a child who barely graduated from the 7th grade to someone who is engaged in and excited about learning again. Although only time will tell if this enthusiasm continues throughout the school year, we are truly grateful for the encouraging start. And we believe that we have the Staff at Chrysalis to thank. They have put together a thoughtful program that helps kids grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. If you find that your child is struggling in public school, please give Chrysalis a call. It is very likely you will reach Dr. Roy Alexander personally to explain how the school can help your child.

My son wasn't happy with his public school. He felt he was expected to be like everyone else, and was being bullied. We saw that the public school would not address the issues we brought to their attention. Chrysalis Experiential Academy offered a learning environment that embraces his individuality, offers teaching more than just your normal classes, but also tries to incorporate what you child is interested in learning. Since the average classroom is considerably smaller, each child feels comfortable with the other students, becomes confident in who they are, and are able to function very well under less stressful conditions. It's a great school that has a lot to offer. We (his parents) and my son loved it right away and knew this was the place for him!
