The renaming of Brookline Regional Catholic as St. John Bosco Academy takes effect July 1, Diocese of Pittsburgh officials announced Thursday.

St. John Bosco will serve five new parishes: Saint Catherine of Siena in Beechview, Saint Mary of the Mount in Mt. Washington, Prince of Peace in South Side, Saint Pamphilus in Beechview and Saint John Vianney in Allentown. The school also will continue to serve Saint Pius, Resurrection and Our Lady of Loretto parishes. The diocese previously announced the renaming for next school year.

The new model allows neighboring parishes without schools to formally assist in recruiting, marketing, governing and financial support for the school, the diocese said. St. John Bosco will be the fourth school in the diocese to operate that way.

Brookline Regional Catholic has about 180 students in Pre-K through eighth grade. It formed in 1995 when Saint Pius, Resurrection and Our Lady of Loreto each closed its parish grade school and consolidated at the Saint Pius site.
