Scholasticism and classical distinctions on knowledge

Hello everyone!

I wanted to know what's the link beetween the two notions mentionned in the title: by classical distinctions, I mean necessary/contingent, a priori/a posteriori and analytic/synthetic.

The general scholastic view on knowledge is that, if i I understood it well, we abstract notion like universals, causation, deduction, etc. from mental images that we form after experience.
Now, is it possible to fit this with the distinctions above?

Can a thomist, for example, clearly say that the conceptualization process make us gain something like synthetic a priori knowledge
