About the City Management Academy 

The City Management Academy (CMA) is a free, multi-week, instructional course that teaches participants about how the City of Sacramento functions.

CMA curriculum features guest lectures from elected officials and department staff focused on topics ranging from day-to-day operations to budget development and the public policy process. 


To be eligible, applicants must reside in the City of Sacramento or own a business in the City of Sacramento. Applicants must also be at least 16 years old. 

How to Apply 

Due to the increased risks associated with COVID-19, the City has postponed accepting CMA applications until 2022. The City will publish more information about future CMA cohorts as soon as practicable.
