An exceptional 13-year-old girl named Sydney Wilson has become the youngest student ever to be admitted student at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia after acing all the College’s academic requirements.
Ever since her young age, she had always displayed exceptional academic prowess. At the age of 12, she was studying advanced placement biology and world history. Her father, Byron Wilson, narrated that Sydney did attend Montessori school not until she was about 6 years old.
“A Montessori gives you what you are ready for, and she just kept going,” said Sydney’s father.
After attending the Montessori school, Sydney was homeschooled for some years and then attended a private school. By the time she was 10 years old, it was clear she did not need to be in elementary school, but high school.
Sydney was then enrolled on the school her Father established – Wilson Academy in Lithonia, United States. At the age of 13, she applied to Spelman College to study Biology and became the youngest student to be admitted into the College.
“This is the first time in recent memory that we have had an admitted student this young. Sydney has shared with us that she intends to enrol. We are excited to welcome her to campus in the fall, along with the rest of the incoming class,” Ingrid Hayes, Spelman College’s Vice president of enrollment management said in a statement.
