Run a wire from the battery right to the starter and see if she pops. If it turns over, I'd say it's the ignition.

Ive tried crossing a screwdriver on the starter solenoid and nothing happens

Ok...starter's bad.

I replaced the starter and had it tested

Put a volt meter on your battery. How many volts?

12.84

The last thing to not pass a test is the ignition switch. It makes no sense if you crossed the starter terminals and it didn't spin. Put a volt meter on the hot side of the starter. If you don't get 12 volts, there has to be a fusible link some where in the system that you've missed.
