Who We Are

Chrysalis Community of Light began as a homeschool co-operative in the Summer of 2020 when a small group of parents and a Waldorf class teacher foresaw the importance of protecting the innocence of Childhood. Our original goal was to preserve our children’s freedom to move, learn and play without fear from the outside world’s view of unfolding events. What has been created is beyond what we believed possible. We have been guided and pulled into something bigger than ourselves and we will continue to do the work needed to manifest what we see is best in protecting our children’s right to be free and sovereign beings. We have now formed a Private Ministerial Association (PMA) in part to educate our children in our belief system.

In the current year, 22 students participate within a community that supports medical freedoms, and without restrictions or fear. Our school is located in Eastern Pennsylvania, approximately 22 miles west of the vibrant city of Philadelphia, on a 3 acre campus comprised of meadows, woods, budding biodynamic garden and playground. 

We are growing rapidly and are expanding our program from two to six classrooms. We are looking to hire teachers to join our PMA next year to open up each new classroom. The ideal candidates carry Waldorf Teacher Training and/or experience, are knowledgeable in, or open to, the world view of Anthroposophy, and to the inner world of Waldorf inspired teaching and way of life. They will be willing to collaborate with mentors and colleagues and be able to implement all aspects of running a full year’s curriculum on their own. An artistic and pioneering spirit would also contribute to the continued growth of our school.
