Michigan Tech runs a high school enterprise which tries to do something similar - and may even be a fit for you. I'm not directly involved, but you can find more information and contact information at:

Subject: [Phys-l] Research Course
Our school is considering starting up a new course, tentatively titled "Advanced Science Research", for talented 11th and 12th grade science students. The general idea is that we would match students up with area university and industrial researchers to give the students an opportunity to do real-life research during their high school years. We imagine that most of the actual research would happen off of our campus and probably during the summer. We are trying to find some other schools who have had some experience with a similar program. I do know that St. John's in Houston has had a course for students for several years. Is anyone out there doing it or do you know of anyone who might have tried it? Thanks, Ron
