Learn about your local government. Build a stronger community. Make a difference.

Congratulations to Abilene Academy Class of 2019 Graduates! 

Be on the lookout for our next session!

Abilene Academy is a ten 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.
