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.
