Abilene Academy Cancelled for 2021

If you applied, we appreciate your interest and are looking forward to next year's class. Thank you.

What is Abilene Academy?

Abilene Academy is an eleven week course designed to show residents how our City government works, develop relationships between citizens and City staff, and identify how residents can become more involved. Abilene Academy works to give our citizens an opportunity to experience City departments from the inside, with a better understanding of their function and how each affects our quality of life.

When will Abilene Academy meet?

Abilene Academy sessions are generally Monday evenings. Exact dates will be set when our next class is planned out.

Want to Join?

Applications will open later in the year, so stay tuned!
