About us

A protected space to grow and develop, to unfold and explore, a foothold to grip and fly…Chrysalis is a journey for the nascent. Charles Darwin explains it as the “proper place on which to become attached and undergo the final metamorphosis.”

In this golden age of childhood, children need a protected place which shelters the vulnerable and allows them the space and the freedom to transform themselves to their full glory. Children are innocent beings, to be treated with utmost care and responsibility till the time they are strong enough to soar.

At Chrysalis High, this is exactly what we help the children do. Soar!


To help our children excel by understanding them, guiding them on the right path & strengthening their self belief.
