There is a small chassidish group in Scranton. Mostly geirim, but not all. Tuition is around $8000 I think, but they are very reasonable with scholarships.
For elementary there is the Scranton Hebrew Day school. SHDS. It is both boys and girls. They separate for hebrew in 4th grade and English in 7th. Though mixed, it's a fairly yeshivish school.

There is a 2nd elementary school opening this year. It's for a more modern and zionistic view.
No idea of their tuition prices.

For high school, there are 2 for girls, both with the same type of yeshivish derech.

There is an OOT yeshivah here that many of the boys go to.

A number of both boys and girls go elsewhere for high school.

Housing prices are very low. You can buy a house starting at around $80,000 and go up to $500,000. All depends on the block you want. Houses are big here. Some need major work, others are move in condition.

Any other questions?

I have a chassidish relative living there. There are no chassidish schools there.
