Buckner Alternative High School
The school was developed to provide educational opportunities for students who, for a variety of reasons, have not been successful in traditional school settings. The BAHS staff works to provide a student-centered educational environment by developing cooperative relationships based on mutual respect, setting high expectations, and individualizing programs to best meet student needs. BAHS serves students from North Oldham Middle School, Oldham County Middle School, South Oldham Middle School, East Oldham Middle School, North Oldham High School, Oldham County High School, and South Oldham High School.

Buckner Alternative High School was established in August 28, 1995. From its humble beginnings, BAHS has embraced a different approach from most alternative schools. A student focused philosophy based on relationships and mutual respect has produced over 400 graduates in eighteen years. The success of Buckner Alternative is a combination of community and district level support, selective staffing, and a culture of, “No Excuses, Find a Way!”
BAHS is several schools within a school, serving some of Oldham County’s most challenging and needy students. On average the school serves between 90 and 125 students every day, including full and part time kids.
Finding a Way!
BAHS continues to stretch itself to fit the constantly changing needs of our community. Our district student population has more than doubled in the last decade. The diversity and density of our local towns and neighborhoods seem to realign overnight. In 19 years Buckner Alternative has never looked the same in consecutive years. We strive to do what’s best for kids, in a safe, nurturing environment making no excuses and always finding a way.
