JoCo Academy

JoCo Academy Logo

As Johnson County residents, we recognize our county as a great place to live, work and raise a family. JoCo Academy allows community-minded individuals to discover what makes our high quality of life possible through behind the scene tours, hands-on activities, and conversations with county elected officials and staff.

Come visit with commissioners, explore the county budget, learn about civic engagement/volunteer opportunities, and tour various county facilities! Upon completion of at least eight of the 10 sessions, participants will receive a certificate.
