The Kenneth Kirchman Foundation currently partners with Florida Fish and Wild Life, along with lake Biologist to host educational fishing programs. Our programming goals are designed to educate future anglers on the importance of proper fish handling techniques and conservation protocols to insure the vitality of the fishery.
The National Archery in Schools Program is an activity that is open to all school age children. N.A.S.P. is an in-school program aimed at improving educational performance among students. And through it, students are learning focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and the life lessons required to be successful in the classroom and in life.

The Kirchman Academy mission is to educate our youth through one of a kind outdoor experiences. In an age where our society is becoming disconnteted and distracted by more indoor activitie. Our aim is to provide unique educational opportunities that can seldom be replicated absent from the outdoors. While on the premises, students can experience old Florida in the woods, wildlife and water. Our goal is that once a student has spent time attending a field trip, training in the archery center or fishing on our fishing peer, they will appreciate the wonder of the outdoors and seek to pursue more outdoor adventure. Additionally, our hope is that we raise awareness among children about the importance of protecting natural habitats and environmentally sensitive lands.
Our fishery and waters are very unique and monitored by biologists continually. Lake X is the largest wholly owned natural lake in all of Florida. By meticulously practicing best land and water management, we are able to use the lake and fishery quite often as a magnificent classroom. While at Lake X a student can learn about fish conservation and the lakes fragile aquatic eco systems. Our goal is that a student leaves with a new understanding of how important our natural waters and wetland resources are for our very survival.
