Welcome to the Citizens Academy

The Citizens Academy is an interactive educational program that informs citizens of Onondaga County about how local governments are organized, and how services are funded and delivered. It is a place to learn about citizen involvement through an integrated approach to economic vitality, social equity, and a healthy environment.

Citizens Academy was created and is administered by FOCUS Greater Syracuse and University College of Syracuse University.
