Our mission is to provide high-quality tutoring and college and career readiness services to pre-kindergarten through twelfth-grade students in underserved communities.
As we support our students, we are also reminded of the critical role that parents play in helping their child excel; therefore, Kennrod is committed to empowering parents through educational resources and activities aimed at strengthening families for years to come.
Every child deserves the opportunity to achieve academic success.
Every parent/guardian want the very best for their child; therefore, they deserve to have the necessary tools to help their child prepare for college, career, and life.
Every school, neighborhood, and the greater community thrives when children are achieving academically.
Student success can be achieved through the collective eﬀorts of students, parents, teachers, school leaders, and community partners.
The role of Kennrod is to support prek-12 teachers and school administrators in their daily work of providing students a core curriculum across all content areas.

Have you ever seen a child struggle academically and said to yourself, if only he/she could read, write, and do math successfully? If you answered “yes”, you now understand why Kennrod exists. We want to help remove barriers to student learning and join parents in their efforts to help their child succeed in school and in life.
MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
It gives me such joy to share Kennrod with you!
“Kenn” represents my second child, Kennedy. Kennedy died in 1999 at 7 months old due to complications from a birth defect known as Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum or ACC. "Rod" represents my first husband, Rodney. Rodney was shot and killed in 2000 while working as a hotel manager during a robbery. He was 36 years old.
On December 15, 2016, Kennrod was established as a Georgia-based, nonprofit organization. We exist to honor the memories of Kennedy and Rodney, as well as to provide educational experiences to students and empowerment for parents in an effort to strengthen families and communities.
We appreciate you for helping us carry out our mission and for being a contributing factor in making the world a better place.
