an ACADEMY Navigator

A navigator is the person on board a ship responsible for its navigation. The navigator's responsibilities include planning the journey, advising the captain while en route, and ensuring that hazards are avoided. The navigator is in charge of maintaining the ship's nautical charts, nautical publications, and navigational equipment, and generally has responsibility for meteorological equipment and communications.

The Navigators lost 19 students during trimesters, with two more students walking at Graduation without receiving a diploma because of their GPA (listed as did not graduate). This means that a total of 21 of the 54 Navigators (including half-years) did not complete the Missouri Academy program, giving their class the current dropout rate record (38.9%), beating the record set by the class of 2007.
