Introducing MEFA Pathway Your Plan for the Future

MEFA Pathway HomepageWe are excited to announce that MEFA Pathway Your Plan for the Future has launched! MEFA Pathway enhances and improves our former college planning portal, YourPlanForTheFuture (YPFF). The new site is located at and provides a fun and engaging environment for MA students to plan for academic and career success. The tool is interactive, colorful, and intuitive with clear instructions that lead students to develop a path through high school and beyond. Counselors can log in to track and guide students as they plan, and we encourage parents to sit with their children to experience all that MEFA Pathway has to offer.

How it works

MEFA Pathway is available for use on desktops and tablets, and is optimized for mobile readability. Students who have been active in the last 18 months in their registered YPFF accounts have been added to the MEFA Pathway system. These students will still need to register for an account in MEFA Pathway, but their demographic data will be pulled over from the YPFF system.

MEFA Pathway offers several benefits and features including:

  • Engaging assessments to help students discover their interests, skills, and values

  • Information on a wide range of careers, and the ability for students to match personal skills with specific jobs

  • A sophisticated college search tool, allowing students to compare the attributes of each school against one another

  • A college application manager, helping students to stay organized and on top of deadlines

  • Calculators to assist families as they prepare for college costs

  • A scholarship search engine and organizational tool to keep students on track with each scholarship’s deadline and status

  • A customized resume builder to record career objectives, academics and activities, and work experience

  • A digital portfolio to provide students a visual library of their personalized plan for the future
