The mission of Chrysalis School is to equip Christ-centered young people with the education needed to compete in a modern world.
History of Chrysalis School
With a vision and faith in God, Pastor Chris Contreras began plans for establishing a school that would offer families an educational alternative in a Christian environment. Chrysalis first opened in September 2017 and was housed in two classrooms in New Work Family Worship Center. The school was blessed to move into a brand-new school building in November 2018. Enrollment has grown each year providing young lives not only an academic education that prepares them for daily living, but spiritual training that will have an eternal impact on their souls.
Students at Chrysalis School will be grounded in God’s Word and challenged to achieve academic excellence as they prepare to use their gifts and abilities effectively to follow God’s plan for their lives.
Chrysalis School embraces a Christian philosophy of education that is built on a Biblical foundation which views knowledge and truth as having their source in God. Chrysalis School seeks to aid the student in developing his/her talents and abilities while learning to view God as the Lord of all of life.
