IMPORTANT - Parent/Guardians - We are asking that you please take the time to make sure your voicemail is set up and in working order and if you've changed your number please let us know. Students, staff and administration routinely make phone calls home. In the event that important information needs to be communicated, having voicemail is very important.

MSAD53 Community: MSAD 53 Adult and Community Education is interested in what you have to say. We are in the process of evaluating our program and looking to see what YOU the community would like to have offered. MSAD 53 Adult and Community Education offers programming in the following areas:

GED Programming

Job/Skills Training

Enrichment Classes


We would love to get your input, hear your feedback, and have you participate in our programming. If you have a skill or a hobby that you think might make a great class please let us know. We ask that you take a few moments and fill out this brief survey.

Kind Regards

Brian Cole

MSAD 53 Adult and Community Education Assistant
