Founder’s Daughter First Ivy Prep Scholar Accepted To College

Seven years ago, Brittany Gilbert was the first sixth grader to enroll in Ivy Preparatory Academy, Georgia’s first single-gender public charter school. Now, as a senior at Ivy Prep, Gilbert has achieved another milestone. She is the first to be accepted to college.

Gilbert, 17, was accepted to Hampton University, her top college choice, recently during Steve Harvey’s Neighborhood Awards
Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center. Hampton University admissions officials recruiting students at the Expo’s College Fair interviewed Gilbert, looked over her application and transcripts, and gave her a letter of acceptance to take home with her.
