The young generation of the Indonesian nation is the generation that determines the nation's future. The inculcation of the values of diversity in the younger generation should be carried out as early as possible. The research aims to explore the understanding of the diversity of students at Madrasah Aliyah Manado City within the framework of SARA (Ethnicity, Religion, Race, and Inter-Group). A qualitative approach was used to collect observation data, interviews, focus group discussions, and documentation in exploring this understanding. The results of this study indicate that the knowledge of the diversity of students in Madrasah Aliyah Manado City generally has limitations in ability SARA diversity, but not so in terms of social relations. Because even since the mother's lap, the students at Madrasah Aliyah Manado City have lived in a pluralistic environment. Students' understanding of SARA diversity in Madrasah Aliyah Manado City is dominantly sourced from students' educational background in understanding religious and inter- group diversity within religion, social media, the community environment, and organizations outside Madrasah. As a recommendation from the Madrasah Aliyah in Manado City, it is necessary to revive the local content contained in the 2013 curriculum so that it can be a place for students to get to know and understand at least the tribes, races, and local cultures in North Sulawesi, forming a community.
