The June Buchanan School (JBS) is a private K-12 prep school located on the campus of Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, in the U.S. state of Kentucky.[1] It is named after founder June Buchanan, who, along with social reformer Alice Spencer Geddes Lloyd, founded the college. It has a student-teacher ratio of 10-1.[2] The school is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.[3]

Even though JBS is located on the campus of Alice Lloyd College, it is a separate division of the Caney Creek Community Center, the non-profit organization that operates both institutions.[1] Country star David Tolliver from the Universal/Mercury Records duo Halfway To Hazard graduated from the high school.[4]

Eighty percent of JBS students participate in extracurricular activities,[2] including speech and academic teams,[5] drama,[5] baseball, boys' and girls' basketball, cross-country, golf, softball, weightlifting, dance and tennis.[6]
