An important part of any community is the schools. Since the 1868 opening of Greely Institute, a strong, rich history of a quality education has existed and continues today.
Over the years, some changes have been made. The most significant was in 1966, when the towns of Cumberland and North Yarmouth came together to create MSAD #51 and the name changed from the Greely Institute to Greely High School.
Today, MSAD #51 currently occupies 3 schools on one K-12 campus with an enrollment of just over 2,000 students: Mabel I. Wilson School (Kindergarten-3rd grade), Greely Middle School (grades 4-8), and Greely High School (grades 9-12).
While receiving an excellent educational experience, many friendships and memories have been fostered, however, unless alumni choose to live in the area connections with classmates and the towns become more challenging.
We would love to keep you up to date on all the happenings at Greely/MSAD #51 and see if you might like to get involved through the newly created Alumni Engagement program.
The purpose of the Alumni Engagement Program is to invite you to participate in the Greely success story in ways that make sense to you. We will ask for the gift of your time through mentoring and career coaching, or job and internship leads for students across all programs. And we hope to keep you connected through alumni events and social media.
The strength of any great school is a tale told by the engagement of its alumni. We hope you will be part of our story.

Connor recently reached out to Chris Hoffman, senior projects chair, to share his success. "When I got here to the University of Miami, I auditioned to be the host of the news station here on campus. Out of 50+ people who auditioned, I was one of two that made it as the main news anchors. As the success of the show took off, I was also offered a spot as a radio host on campus, and have my own radio show on 90.5FM Miami. Being a TV/radio host here means that I get asked to represent the school at big events here in Miami. For example, last week I got to attend the iHeart Radio Music Festival, and be a reporter on the red carpet. I was placed next to NBC and People Magazine on the carpet, and got to talk to Jennifer Lopez, Akon, Pitbull, the cast of the new show Empire and many more. I had to pinch myself standing there laughing with such big celebrities, taking pictures with them and asking them about their current career projects. A couple weeks earlier, when an E! News host was here in Miami, I tweeted him and asked him to watch my show, and he did so and reached out to me. We have since become friends, and he is currently trying to get me an internship at E! in Los Angeles for next summer."
Congratulations on your accomplishments thus far Connor!
