The Tennessee Career Planning System (TCPS) powered by Kuder is a comprehensive, research-based approach to career exploration, planning, and development. Sponsored by Edsouth, every student at SMHS is able to access this planning system free of charge.

The Career Portfolio is the gateway to the online career planning system. Through the portfolio, online users begin to build an education plan, take assessments, and explore postsecondary and occupational information. The portfolio also allows users to compare college profiles and occupations side-by-side, save information to a “favorites” list, access financial aid and scholarship information, and build a professional resumé. All pages of the system have been encrypted to keep information secure.

All students should click on Returning Users at to continue using the Tennessee College and Career Planning System. Parents, ask your child to show you this valuable resource.  For more information, contact your child’s guidance counselor or Josette Schlafer, CTE Lab Coordinator at
