G. Frederick Dickson

Retired Partner

Rick Dickson advised families of students bound for independent schools, as well as families in crisis dealing with troubled teens. He graduated in 1975 from Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in history, which included a teaching internship in American and Chinese history at The Gunnery School, now the Frederick Gunn School, in Washington, Connecticut.

In 2002, after 27 years in sales and marketing, Rick joined Dunbar and returned to education. He arrived with considerable firsthand experience, having guided his three children through public schools, independent boarding schools, and college. Since then, Rick has worked with over 300 families, made over 150 Independent school visits and over 100 Therapeutic school/program visits developing extensive knowledge of their curricula and programs. Although not a college consultant, Rick also enjoyed regularly reading many of the college client essays, adding comments where he can.
