Abilene Academy is a free, 11-week course that gives participants an inside look at the operations and services provided by the City of Abilene. Each week, class members will get to dive into a different City department and get a behind-the-scenes look into operations and services. At the completion of the course, participants are invited to take part in Field Day; a hands-on opportunity to ride, operate, and learn about some of the major equipment and machinery used by City staff.

Abilene Academy 2022 will begin Monday, February 7, 2022, and meet weekly through Monday, May 2, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. (class will not be held Monday, February 14 or March 8). Dinner is provided.
