The Kentucky Military Institute (KMI) was founded in 1845 by Colonel
Robert Thomas Pitcairn Allen and chartered in 1847 as a military
preparatory school. It operated locations in Lyndon, Kentucky, and
Venice, Florida, where all the students were classified as cadets. Due
to high tuition and waning interest in military schools, KMI closed in
1971 and eventually merged the Kentucky Country Day School in 1971.
