Bryan Station High School, founded in 1958, is a high school within the Fayette County Public Schools system in Lexington, Kentucky. During the 2006-2007 school year, students were moved to their newly built school known as Bryan Station High. The school was named for Bryan Station, an 18th-century pioneer settlement. The school mascot is the Defender in reference to the defense of the settlement during the American Revolutionary War.

Athletics[edit]

The Defenders support 15 different sports teams including football, basketball, soccer, baseball, wrestling, rowing, skiing, softball, volleyball, tennis, swimming and track and field. The Defenders' football team won the 1971 2A title.[citation needed] The Defenders' boys track team took home titles in 1971, 1975, and 1979-83[citation needed] while the Lady Defenders' track team won titles in 1976-79, 1981–82, and 1987–88.[citation needed] Athletic teams typically play against other teams from Fayette County, including Henry Clay High School, Lafayette High School, Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, and Tates Creek High School.

Air Force Junior ROTC[edit]

Bryan Station is home to Air Force Junior Reserve Office Training Corps detachment Ky-041.

New school building[edit]

In 2004, Bryan Station was granted the right to start construction on a new school building. The school was finished in December 2006, and is now in use. It is the largest high school facility in the state of Kentucky.[citation needed]
