Eden Prairie City Government Academy

Eden Prairie's City Government Academy is a free, six-week program offering Eden Prairie residents a behind-the-scenes look at how their City operates.

Each week, a different department is spotlighted while participants tour facilities, meet City staff and learn about municipal government. Following the six classes, participants take part in a graduation celebration during a City Council meeting.
