Dedicated to a rewarding and successful college search

Corsava Cards ®

Use this fun card-sorting tool to discover what matters most as students begin the college search. Corsava provides a great way for students to prioritize the college characteristics they prefer as they start their search. This creative tool has been used by thousands of counselors and students around the world. Corsava is available both online and hardcopy format.

Corsava is a creative solution consisting of over 125 colorful cards. Each card displays a characteristic for students to sort into categories—those they really want, those to which they are neutral, or those that they absolutely do not want.

Counselors find it invaluable for students to use Corsava to help them narrow their college lists. Students and family members have fun sorting the cards and comparing results using Corsava Reports. The answers are often surprising, which is what makes this a fun and innovative approach to the college search. This is a great opportunity to open discussions on what really matters to students in finding the right fit.


The cards have been updated and you can read more about transitioning to the new cards here.

“First let me say that I am putting to use your wonderful cards, and they have TRANSFORMED my initial interview sessions with the students. They keep me from talking too much, and they give kids something active to do (and they make up their minds surprisingly quickly). Once they’re finished, there’s a great opportunity to talk about possible inconsistencies in their ideal college concept—like the student who wants a big school in a big city and small discussion-based classes with accessible professors! Thank you so much for this fabulous aid!”

“Easy way to talk about a potentially overwhelming choice.  Awesome product – I will definitely tell everyone I know about it.  Thanks so much!!”
