The Intel Science Talent Search is pretty much exactly like this. You work on graduate-level research with a university professor as your mentor.

Even if you don't care about the competition, it's an easy pretense for getting in touch and working with a professor. Plus, you might be able to convince your school to give you time during the day to work on your research (when I was in HS, we got a period every other day).
